The Good Foot Forward program provides basic foot care services for people who have Diabetes or Peripheral Arterial Disease and have no access to footcare (i.e. no extended health benefits or ability to pay for footcare privately).

Foot care is key to prevent issues that could lead to lower-limb amputations.

Issues with your feet could look like a callus, numbness or lack of feeling in the lower leg/toes/feet, or unkept toenails. It could also include foot or toenail deformities, wounds or sores that are recurrent or hard to heal, previous toe or partial foot amputations.
