Footwear for Glasgow’s Homeless


Margaryta Bazelchuk, a Level 3 BSc Podiatry student at Glasgow Caledonian, was the proud winner of the Cosyfeet Podiatry Award 2018. Her objective was to help one of the most vulnerable groups in society, whilst at the same time improving student exposure to patients within the homeless environment.

Following her win, Margaryta sought the expert guidance of the Greater Glasgow and Clyde Homeless and Asylum Services Podiatrist on how best her £1000 award money could be utilised. As a result, it was agreed it should be used to carry out a footwear assessment project focussing on homeless service users in the Glasgow area. This provided Margaryta and her peers with the opportunity to work in partnership with the NHS and the third sector in helping homeless people.
