    Story

    Therapies Unite works with children and adults with physical and or mental disabilities in Mexico. Limited resources, services and equipment for people with disabilities as well as a lack of knowledge in regards to treatment and management results in poor physical and mental health outcomes, limits life expectancy and has a negative impact on quality of life.

    It is estimated there are 9.17 million people living with a disability in Mexico, 7.5% of the population. Sadly, only 15% of people with a disability are receiving secondary education, 47.2% are employed and 45% and live in poverty. Moreover, awareness of disability rights is low among both people with and without disabilities.

    Therapies Unite has worked in Mexico for the past six years and runs six programs including a hydrotherapy program, postural management clinic, a volunteer program, specialist training/courses and community disabled sports group. All focus on improving the physical and/or mental health and general well-being of individuals with disabilities. Therapies Unite works with family members, health care professionals and carers working within the field of disabilities to educate, empower and improve existing local services. We also focus on the wider communities, promoting and celebrating the achievements of individuals with disabilities, providing opportunities for work and recreational activities and improving integration into society. Therapies Unite strives to achieve positive changes that are long lasting and sustainable by the local community.

    We need to raise £3000 so we can continue to develop our projects and be able to register with the charity commission. Currently Therapies Unite is run by a very small team with limited resources and time. We want this to change so we can have even more of an impact. within the disabled community. All money raised goes directly to our projects
