The BLESMA Mission: To enable limbless veterans to lead independent and fulfilling lives.

It is the charity that directly supports all our service men and women who lose limbs, the use of limbs or eyes or the sight of an eye in the service of our country and we are with them all whenever we are needed for the rest of their lives.

Our work starts with rehabilitation - proving that there is life after amputation. Our work is about amputee helping amputee - the fellowship of shared experience. Our work is about life long welfare support, about campaigning for what they deserve and about being there when old injuries come back to haunt.

Our youngest Member is 19 and our oldest is 99.

Truly we are BLESMA for Life. 

For those interested in raising money for BLESMA or supporting the charity in another capacity.

On our 'Get Involved' pages, you will find plenty of information on how to do exactly that - get involved!

Whether you want to organise a big fundraiser in a group, take part in an event, complete a challenge on your own, or get your company involved in raising money for our limbless veterans, then go to our fundraising pages where you will find all the information you need, as well as events you can be part of and examples of events in case you need inspiration.
