This special event, hosted by Meningitis Research Foundation, is designed for families with children (0 – 16 yrs) who have lost limbs due to meningitis and septicaemia.
You will have the opportunity to get your questions answered by medical specialists, see the latest prosthetics, and meet other families who have been affected by this disease.
Children with amputations, alongside their siblings, can get involved in a range of sporting activities with specialist coaches, whilst parents can listen to talks from expert clinicians specialising in rehabilitation medicine.
This year we are also offering arts and crafts activities for the children.
We hope that this will be a fun and informative day for everyone and an opportunity to make some new friends, learn more about amputation rehabilitation from experts, and from the people who know best – each other.
The day runs from 9.30am - 4.00pm.
