Operating under the governance of the Society of Tissue Viability, Legs Matter is a coalition of eight healthcare charities and not-for-profit organisations. Legs Matter is funded by these organisations, charitable donations and our corporate partners.


There’s a hidden harm crisis in leg and foot care and we can all act to help tackle it.

Insufficient action on leg and foot conditions is harming people. The current reality in the UK is that people with leg and foot conditions are not being treated adequately or in time and, as a result, are being harmed.

Harm includes unnecessary pain, infection, amputation, hospitalisation, loss of livelihood, social isolation, anxiety, and depression. This harm is unacceptable and avoidable.

We are calling on senior leaders and decision makers within the NHS to radically rethink the way leg and foot conditions are managed in order to reduce harm.
