BRITISH POLIO FELLOWSHIP – KING’S LYNN GROUP
There are, nationally, approximately 190000 survivors who caught Polio; some live in West Norfolk. 50 or more years later the effects of the disease has returned as Post Polio Syndrome.
We seek out local Polio survivors and offer information, welfare and support to those living with the effects of PPS, to enable all to live full independent and integrated lives. We also try to inform health professionals locally about the ongoing existence and needs of Polio survivors.
We provide information, welfare advice and support, hydrotherapy, we promote and support Sailability (sailing for the disabled), we send PPS information to GPs, hospitals, physios, Community Health etc.
