The Limbless Association provides information and advice and support for people of all ages who are without one or more limbs. It has a nationwide network of volunteer visitors (within the UK) who are all amputees themselves, offering support and encouragement to prospective amputees, carers and those already trying to come to terms with limb loss or deficiency.

The Association promotes user consultation in the running of artificial limb centres (within the UK), and works in partnership with statutory, commercial, voluntary and other bodies to raise standards and develop policy. A quarterly magazine Step Forward circulates to members, supporters and professionals. Non-amputees may join as "Friends" of the Limbless Association.

The Limbless Association is also a member of the emPOWER consortium of charities which campaigns on behalf of users of disability equipment. Contact the Association for further details.
