Amputees Supporting Amputees

Find out how our peer mentoring service can help you.

Our Volunteer Visitor peer mentoring programme provides vital one-to-one support for individuals both pre- and post-amputation who require practical information and emotional support through their limb loss journey. 

Thanks to National Lottery community funding, the VV programme has been further enhanced to provide support to more amputees as well as providing training and support to our wonderful team of volunteers.
