Get a Life! Foundation aims to provide both practical and emotional support for anyone who has experienced a life-altering illness or injury.
The transition from the life you once knew to one where disability is an unavoidable part of everyday life is a difficult one, and one where there is currently in our opinion inadequate provision, not only for those directly affected but also their loved ones who also have huge adjustments to make.
We believe that rehabilitation could be shortened and improved by providing a better infrastructure of psychological care for all involved in this process. This would lead to individuals feeling empowered to fight back against adversity, embracing their new circumstances and adapting to a different but no less fulfilling life.
Get a Life! also hopes to promote inclusion of those who have felt pushed out of society by their disability, by educating people that disability is indiscriminate. Compassion rather than comparison is the key to changing engrained preconceptions.
