Three churches in Perth now in step together with Footwise clinics
Tayside Christian Fellowship’s Footwise Ministry started early in 2020, but due to COVID it has taken till this year for the clinic to take off and be able to achieve the results we and our clients have only been able to dream about till now.
We are now fast approaching the situation where we will need to introduce a waiting list for new clients. Perth Baptist Church has been in this situation for some time now and so the news last month that North Church has just opened its monthly clinic is perfect timing.
Why is there a need for FOOTWISE?
Footwise is an initiative of Perth and Kinross Council following the NHS withdrawal of regular toe nail cutting services for thousands of people throughout Perthshire. The Council approached churches for help and Perth Baptist Church, Tayside Christian Fellowship and North Church responded and have set up clinics.
The service is appropriate for people who are in reasonably good health but who are unable to undertake their own footcare. Attendance at the first clinic costs £15 which includes the client’s own personal care kit and record card. Thereafter, each appointment only costs £5.
The Last Word Goes to Our Clients!
Footwise is not there to provide a beauty appointment, there is a very real need for this service. These are just some of the recent comments made by our clients:
