Training To Be An Amputee

Free face-to-face learning and support in Essex for amputees and their families in Mid and South Essex.

The Limbless Association recognises the excellent work of clinicians in their management of the rehabilitation process for amputees. However, amputees and their families live the majority of their lives beyond the clinic room.

Our work tells us that access to the right information and holistic support for amputees, including peer networks, is vital to living best lives beyond limb loss. Training to be an Amputee compliments and collaborates with the work of clinicians to ensure that no amputee need cope alone.

“This course has made me realise that I’m not alone, that I’m not the only person like this. The LA completely changed that for us – I’m not sitting there alone.”

Running in Billericay, Southend and Chelmsford throughout 2024
