PPEF

The Trustees of the Private Physiotherapy Educational Foundation’s aim is ‘Helping Physiotherapy Make a Difference’. They achieve this through funding research and education programmes which benefit physiotherapists, their patients and members of the public.

The PPEF has a website which can be found at www.ppef.org.uk. Please visit this website to see if you can benefit from the work of the Foundation or if you are eligible to apply for a grant. Grants are available to all HCPC registered physiotherapists whatever setting they work in.

This year the Foundation is pleased to be supporting the Physio First conference once again by funding the international lecturers. The PPEF also supports the Physio First Data for Impact project, as well as many other individual projects.

The PPEF annual general meeting will take place at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham on Saturday 28 April at 13.00hrs and is open to all PPEF members.

If you would like to become a member of the PPEF an application form can be downloaded from the website.

The PPEF was endowed by Kenneth Balfour who was, in his youth, an adventurous young man. Decorated for bravery during the war, a mountain climber and avid traveller, in his later life he suffered from Parkinson’s disease, an illness that slowly reduced his physical independence but certainly not his spirit. Kenneth endowed the PPEF because he had experienced for himself the difference Physiotherapy made to his quality of life. He wanted to also honour his wife, herself a physiotherapist in private practice, after her death. He approached the OCPPP (now Physio First), and his endowment gave rise to the formation of PPEF.

The Kenneth Balfour Memorial Lectures, the PPEF Lectures and the Physio First data collection project are examples of how the PPEF supports the education of physiotherapists, particularly Physio First members.

There are many more opportunities for physiotherapists to benefit from the PPEF. Applications range from relatively small amounts awarded to individuals, to larger projects from Universities and other charities. This year the PPEF stand will be located at stand number 12 in the main exhibition hall where you can find more information about the Charity, and some of the recent projects that it has funded. There is also an opportunity to find out how you can apply for funding if you are undertaking any kind of educational activity or research. The PPEF Trustees will be on hand to answer any queries you may have. You do not have to be a member of Physio First to apply.
