Pinc & Steel : Who are they and how can the Pinc & Steel Foundation help?
PINC & STEEL has been the pioneering force behind the cancer rehabilitation movement in New Zealand and Australia since 2005, and is now proud to be supporting people throughout the U.K. and Ireland.
The Pinc & Steel Rehabilitation Programmes provide individualised, prescribed rehabilitation to men, women and young people diagnosed with cancer; helping them heal as well as possible, and function at optimal levels through every stage of their treatment and recovery.
The PINC & STEEL Cancer Rehabilitation Foundation UK & Ireland is an official registered charity to improve accessibility to rehabilitation services for people affected by cancer.
Funds are raised by volunteers in communities to support local people needing cancer rehab services. Many people suffer huge financial challenges after a cancer diagnosis and if they are unable to access essential rehab services it can have an impact on all aspects of their life.
If you would like to support Pilates Health Physiotherapy to be able to offer cancer patients the opportunity to access rehabilitation services at a reduced cost, please consider donating to our Just Giving page.
All donations go directly to the Pinc & Steel Foundation UK & Ireland
