The Limbless Association is a long-standing national charity based in Chelmsford, Essex, which through its stakeholder networks extends its reach as an organisation operating and connecting nationally. The LA aims to support amputees, whatever their non-medical needs, from the point of consultation and preoperative assessment through to post-operative recovery and rehabilitation. Our core services include a dedicated support line, direct access to welfare rights and legal advice, peer to peer support through our membership, wellbeing support and links to local services.
The LA’s two key projects are the Support and Connect Hub outreach programme and Volunteer Visitors (peer mentors). The loss of a limb or limbs, through accident or illness, is a devastating and life-changing experience that affects the individual and their families. Consequently, issues can be multiple, complex and severe. Here at the LA we champion lives without barriers and believe that all amputees should have unparalleled support to lead independent and fulfilled lives.
Our key message is that No Amputee Need Cope Alone.
The Services Support Officer, Information and Advice, (SSO) is a key role in our organisation, with responsibility for the administration and coordinating of the LA’s advisory service to all stakeholders, as well as supporting other roles and projects. As the initial point of contact within the organisation, the SSO will support our information support line and aim to service and grow the LA’s membership, providing all our stakeholders with excellent customer service at all times. The SSO will also support coordinating of the LA’s peer mentoring service.
