Introducing Me, Too & Co – a local children’s charity

Working in the Richmond Borough, me, too & co provide support for parents and fun for children with special needs. For example, families with autistic kids (wherever they are on the spectrum), hearing and sight impairments, Down’s syndrome and other developmental problems. They give parents access to information and support from other families in similar situations.

For the children, they offer play and socialisation opportunities which all help with the children’s development. Additionally they give these families access to complementary therapies, in particular Osteopathy.

Osteopathy is great for kids generally as it is a gentle (often calming and enjoyable) treatment which can help with a number of issues that traditional medicine sometimes can only control rather than resolve. So for example, asthma, allergies and digestive issues (like colic and reflux). In addition learning difficulties, behavioural issues (like those associated with autism) and physical issues resulting from some illnesses (for example Cerebral Palsy) can all be helped. Their Osteopathy clinic is held weekly du.ring term time on Tuesday afternoons 2.30 to 5.30 p.m.

So we at The Maris Practice help support this local charity. This includes offering a number of free cranial osteopathic appointments for babies each week to help those in need, plus it gives us the opportunity to raise funds by suggesting a donation is made to me, too & co for the treatment. Plus one of our Osteopath’s donates their time each week working in the me, too & co Osteopathy clinic

There is a team of 4-5 osteopath who volunteer every Tuesday to treat children at Me, too and co. One of them is from our team. 

For more details about this fantastic charity, including how you can volunteer or donate, visit their website and like them on Facebook.
