Hand Camp

This project provides a weekend of activities for a group of children with hand and upper limb differences.

The camp allows our children from the West Midlands region to develop self-confidence, and independence, and improve their social interaction, self-esteem, and problem-solving skills, in an enjoyable and positive 'can-do' setting.

Children are supervised by occupational therapists, specialist therapists - such as music therapists - and by older teenagers and young adults with hand differences who will act as mentors. Activities include arts and crafts, meal preparation, sports, drama, music and team building. We monitor the therapeutic and functional outcomes of this camp on an individual basis as well as the subjective benefits.

Coffee mornings

Several times a year, a coffee morning is held on a Saturday. This is a great opportunity to come along and meet the Hand and Upper Limb team and other parents and children with congenital hand differences. Activities are also arranged for the children.

Please ask your doctor or therapist at your next appointment if you would like to come along and have not already been invited.
