Welcome to Heel & Toe Children’s Charity

Our Mission

Heel & Toe supports children and young people with profound physical and neurological disabilities from the North East region to live active, fulfilling, independent lives by the provision of free and subsidised therapy.

Achieving our Mission

We offer a range of services, led by highly qualified therapists, to children and young people of all ages from 3 months to 19 years (in line with current NHS Children and Young Adult Services criterion). Therapy sessions can be one-to-one or group, depending on the child’s needs, and are available from 8.30am to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday.  We liaise with all external organisations concerned with a child’s care to aid and assist the NHS, Social Services and the LEA wherever possible and to develop and enhance our service.

Our Vision

Our vision is to support children with disabilities to live full, productive lives where possibilities and opportunities are not constrained by their disabilities.  We focus on supporting achievement and building on a child’s success.  We aim to improve children and young people’s quality of life, and that of their families, by supporting them to make real improvements to their physical and emotional health.  This in turn improves their level of confidence and self-esteem, motivation and fun.  We want children, young people and their families to have the chance to look forward to a more independent and fulfilling future.

Value Statement: we believe that no child or young person should be denied Conductive Education due to a lack of money.

Our highly skilled therapists can provide assessments, block treatments or regular 1 on 1 sessions. Specific aims and outcomes will be discussed during assessment and goals set.

Heel & Toe can also provide specialist Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Speech and Language and Hydrotherapy for children which include an assessment or treatment. All assessments are carried out by highly skilled, highly qualified therapists. We work with the children’s parents and family to provide this service for free through subsidised treatments, fundraising and donations.
