Have you had an amputation? If so, I would like to invite you to take part in my online research into physical activity and feelings about appearance. The survey involves answering 5 short questionnaires which you can access online. Please message me if you have any questions. You can access the survey via this link: http://tinyurl.com/ycjjcywx

Thank you!

 

Would you like to learn how to fly for FREE ! I am a left leg Hip disarticulated amputee and have just completed the first stinit of my FSDP flying scholarship. So far it has been a truly amazing experience and I can now fly a plane ! The FSDP scheme is free to apply for and if you are successful in obtaining a scholarship, all costs are covered except getting to and from the locations. Closing date is the end of November this year and to date applications numbers are quite low. There were 12 scholarships granted last year. It focuses on people who have lost their confidence and self esteem and rebuilds this through flying. It has worked wonders for me and can certainly vouch that it gives you back self belief and confidence. You have nothing to lose by applying. I thought I had no chance and I'm now flying and have joined the FSDP family. Absolutely amazing. More details can be found on their website. Go for it ! http://www.fsdp.co.uk/
