Barrie Evans is the Outreach Co-ordinator and Support Officer for the Limbless Association in Wales.

The Limbless Association (LA) is a national limb loss charity, which has been supporting amputees and their families across the UK since 1983.

Losing one or more limbs can be isolating, adversely affecting a person’s mental as well as physical wellbeing. Our mission is to support and empower amputees to lead independent and fulfilled lives, so no amputee need cope alone.

We provide free, high-quality information, advice and support to anyone pre- or post-amputation or living with congenital limb loss – by phone, email and online.

Our services include:

  • LA Helpdesk accessed by a freephone helpline – 0800 644 0185 – and email – [email protected]
  • Volunteer Visitor peer support service
  • Support and Connect outreach and online events
  • LA information packs
  • LA website –
  • LA Legal Panel
  • Quarterly StepForward magazine
  • AmpLAfy podcast
  • Young Ambassador programme.

 We also offer assistance to clinicians and other professionals working with the limb loss community.

We make no charge for these services and membership of the LA is free to all amputees.

If you would like to know more about the work of the Limbless Association and the services and support that we provide, please Contact no 07508 465685 or e-mail [email protected].
