Since 2019

Happier Feet For All

The Footcare Project is a footwear drive organised by a team of dedicated podiatrists. With a profound belief in the power of community and compassion, our goal is to make a tangible difference in the lives of the less fortunate, particularly homeless individuals, who often face tremendous hardships and lack access to necessities like properly fitting footwear.

Proper Fittings

Our team takes the time to properly measure and fit each individual to find shoes that will maximise comfort and support.

Improving Self-Esteem

A good pair of shoes provides improved self-esteem and confidence through something many take for granted.

Quality Footwear

Gently used shoes are cleaned, inspected and repaired by our podiatrist volunteers to ensure they are in good condition.

Boosting Health Outcomes

Having well-fitted shoes can prevent injuries, infections and other foot issues that may arise from ill-fitting footwear.

Education & Empowerment

Recipients learn from our podiatrists how small changes can safeguard long-term foot health and overall wellness.
