The Limb Loss Information Centre (run by the Douglas Bader Foundation) is an online resource created to guide individuals with congenital or acquired limb loss and their friends, family and carers through the emotional, physical and psychological process of coming to terms with limb loss.

British Limbless Ex-Service Men’s Association is a national charity for limbless serving or ex-serving men or women, and they are able to provide general information, counselling, grants and assistance with getting into employment.
