Welcome to the Amputation Foundation
The Amputation Foundation is a unique charity, that not only assists amputees but also medical professionals in their work to give new amputees the best start, following amputation.
The Amputation Foundation can assist amputees with many of their support needs and providing information that will be relevant to starting a new life as an amputee which will include benefits information, legal information, prosthetic centre advice and information, education and retraining and much more. Amputation Foundation will continue to support these people with their needs moving forward through rehabilitation and on to retraining for future employment and even sports and hobbies which may require adaptations or specialist inclusive activities.
Who we help
How the Amputation Foundation can help you.
Amputation Foundation (AF) is the first point of call for amputees, families and friends of amputees, and hospital professionals to contact to obtain immediate and impartial support from other amputees and support organisations.
AF is linked with all support networks and groups around the UK to ensure each and every amputee has first-hand advice, information, and support that will be beneficial to living a life without limb(s).
We have over 50 years combined experience of working with hundreds of amputees, with reasons of amputation ranging from diabetes to explosions to crocodile attacks, there really isn’t many more reasons we could think of than what we have dealt with so please understand our knowledge is second to none.
We are also linked to many disability and amputation charitable organisations that offer different services and alternative information so if we can’t help you directly, we can link you with the people that can.
Please feel free to have a good look through our website as there are many relevant pages of information that may or will help you, if you can’t find what you need, please drop us an email and we will get back to you at our earliest convenience.
