The Limbless Association is a registered charity (Charity registration Nos. 803533 and SCO42256) that was originally established in 1983. Since then, it has grown to become the leading UK charity for people with limb-loss. It was granted charitable status in Scotland on 18 April 2011
The Limbless Association was formerly based in south-west London, at Queen Mary’s Hospital, Roehampton (The Douglas Bader Rehabilitation Centre). This was the first-ever prosthetic centre in the UK (built in 1915) and is still regarded as a centre-of-excellence for prosthetic treatment and rehabilitation.
We are a registered charity that has been supporting amputees for over 35 years. We aim to support amputees, pre and post-amputation, to navigate the associated complexities with advice, information and sign posting to empower individuals and
their families to optimise their recovery and rehabilitation.
