We raise funds for people with disabilities to promote independence and integration


Therapies Unite is a brilliant UK based charity that provides healthcare and rehabilitation to children and adults who have disabilities. The charity offers these services in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, a country where healthcare is private and there in minimal state funding. Without Therapies Unite these people would be unable to access the help and rehabilitation they need and would be left to struggle financially, physically and emotionally. Therapies Unite is a charity and relies on donations and support to be able to run and to provide the vital support they do.

In Easter 2020, I will going out to Puerto Vallarta to work with this charity for 5 weeks for my final physiotherapy placement. I will be working with disabled children and adults and supporting Therapies Unite work and helping provide the physiotherapy needed. 

The money I am wanting to raise is not to support my own trip but to donate towards the charity I will be working for so any money donated will be going straight to the disabled children and adults Therapies Unite helps. 

I hope to personally be able to make a difference in people’s lives and help those who really need it and I hope you will support me and donate so you can help make a difference to.

Any donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Therapies Unite works to improve the well-being, independence, integration and inclusion of people with disabilities living in Mexico. Our main aim is to support people who need help through the provision of skilled and qualified professional volunteers, dedicated specialist care, training and equipment. We work in deprived areas where poverty and limited medical care are a reality of everyday life. Through our support and professional expertise, we aim to make a long-lasting difference to people's lives while benefiting the wider community. All of the projects we run focus on empowering local people to set up or to develop existing services in order to help the local disabled community. As well as setting up and running our own independent projects, we also support the development of existing rehabilitation services at special needs schools, disabled children’s centres, physiotherapy clinics, elderly care homes and we also work with the local Government to improve access to therapeutic support, education and advice. We are always thinking about how we can make long term changes and through focusing on education and supporting local people we feel we are able to make the differences that are needed to help improve the lives of people with disabilities.
