The Limbless Association (LA) is a registered charity that has been supporting amputees for nearly 35 years. We aim to support amputees, pre-and post-amputation, to navigate the associated complexities with advice, information and signposting to empower individuals and their families to optimise their recovery and rehabilitation.
Dealing with the practical and emotional impact of limb loss is a complex and very personal unpredictable journey. Here at the LA we support an early intervention approach with a range of services and resources that we've developed based on our experiences. As a user-led charity we know that where the right support is available, recovery outcomes are greatly improved.
Our key areas of focus are advising, supporting, informing and connecting.
The LA operates a Help Desk, a Welfare Rights Advice Service, a peer support scheme – our Volunteer Visitors – and importantly offers amputees access to legal advice from a consortium of top law firms, where a claim for personal injury or clinical negligence may be pursued. Amputees can connect and stay informed via our quarterly magazine, newsletter, website and by becoming an LA member.
By supporting the LA you are ensuring our support continues so that #NoAmputeeNeedCopeAlone
