Contact and HemiHelp receive no government funding. We can only support families if we continually raise money to fund our services.

If you find the magazine a useful resource, please consider donating or fundraising for us. Every penny raised helps fund our events, publications and other services, which provide essential help and hope to families living with hemiplegia.

Subscription to HemiHelp magazine - FAQs


What will I receive for my subscription?

We will produce three editions of HemiHelp magazine per year. The magazine will be accessed online on a site called PageSuite, as a digital flip book. You will also have access to back issues of the online magazine using the archiv.


How will I access the magazine online?

When you sign up for your subscription, you will set up a username and password for PageSuite, a website where you can view issues of the magazine online.


Can I receive a printed paper copy of the magazine?

We know that people appreciated receiving a paper copy. However, like many charities, in the current economic climate we cannot justify the high costs of printing and posting the magazine. It is also more environmentally friendly to produce a digital copy. You will be able to print out the magazine from PageSuite.


If I've already signed up for the online magazine subscription in the past, will I have to re-subscribe?

No, please continue using your original login details. If you are a past member of HemiHelp and used to receive a paper magazine, you will need to subscribe again for the online magazine.
