Who We Are

Who we are

The Foundation for Paediatric Osteopathy is a specialist osteopathy charity that makes osteopathy an option for all children and families. The Osteopathic Centre for Children is the name of our dedicated Paediatric clinic.


Our mission

Our mission is to train skilled and knowledgeable Paediatric osteopaths, research osteopathy for children, and provide excellent osteopathic care for children (up to 18) and pregnant and post-natal women (up to 6 treatments) at our dedicated Paediatric clinic. We treat all patients, regardless of their ability to donate for treatment. We always treat holistically to help restore, maintain and support health and well-being.

Kindness principle

We believe that kindness is inherent in the good practice of osteopathy. It takes many forms, from really giving our patients our full caring attention when listening to their health issues, to offering our services and asking families only to donate what they can to support our work. Many of our skilled osteopaths kindly volunteer their skills to benefit those who can’t access osteopathy in private practice.
