ABOUT OUR FELLOWSHIP

The British Polio Fellowship is a charitable organisation supporting and empowering people in the UK living with the late effects of polio and post-polio syndrome (PPS). We provide information, welfare and support to those affected, to enable them to live full, independent and integrated lives and campaigns to raise awareness of PPS.


We have members across the UK with over 50 branches and groups across the nation. We publish a quarterly newsletter, the bulletin; and campaigns to raise awareness of PPS among healthcare professionals, members of parliament and the general public and supports the efforts of fellow Polio organisations in our attempts to eradicate the disease worldwide.

POST-POLIO SYNDROME

Post Polio Syndrome (PPS) is a neurological condition that can occur in people who have had Polio. People may develop new symptoms of increasing weakness, stamina problems, fatigue and pain.

POLIO & VACCINATION

The IPV vaccine uses inactive (not live) Polio virus and does not cause Polio. Polio vaccine, given multiple times as per advice, almost always protects for life.

HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS

Our information for Healthcare Profressionals includes essential information for those dealing with PPS for the first time or wanting to find out more. Find out more here.
