Trafford Children’s Therapy Service – Physiotherapy

Trafford Children’s Therapy is a combined physiotherapy and occupational therapy team. We provide high quality holistic therapy assessments, treatments, advice and care to babies, children and young people with complex and additional needs.

Our aim is to improve the child's function in daily activities so they can achieve their full potential and stay healthy.

We work closely with partner agencies to provide safe, coordinated interventions, which focus on the needs of the child and their family and keep waiting times to a minimum.

We're based at Sale Waterside but also work in a variety of settings including schools, nurseries, clinics and the child’s home.

In 2015 we were one of the trust's Principles of Care Award winners, check out our video below:
