The Limbless Association
Limbless Association is a national charity for individuals with limb loss, their family and their carers. We aim to help these individuals through their own talents and initiatives to become active members of their communities. LA enables amputees achieve rehabilitation and sustain independence at home, employment and in the community. LA is the only charity for individuals with limb loss of all ages and backgrounds. We run many programs that are unique to our organisation such as a national helpline devoted to amputee issues; our Football+ Project run in conjunction with Chelsea FC Football in the Community, and our Outreach Program, which co-ordinates our prominent Volunteer Visitors Network. This Network consists members who, using their experience as amputees, support people awaiting amputation or amputees experiencing difficulties since their operation. Limbless Association also played a key role in assisting victims who sustained limb-loss during the 7/7 London terrorist attacks.
