We’re proud to be supporting Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month 2021!


This year’s campaign focuses on the theme ‘Together we can do more’ and has seen a consortium of UK charities who support children, young people and adults with limb loss or difference, coming together to celebrate and promote Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month #LLLDAM


The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted on everyone’s lives, but it has had a disproportionate impact on persons with a disability. The result has been increased isolation and loneliness, with many individuals staying at home and maintaining physical distance to stay safe.


During Limb Loss and Limb difference Awareness Month (LLLDAM), the campaign and its supporters will be raising awareness and helping to combat that, through the creation of a special online hub.


We believe that working together we can achieve more and reach more of our collective community members at home when they need us the most. We hope our presence will highlight the impact of living with limb difference on both the individual and on their family and support network. We will focus on supporting and connecting community members to reduce their isolation and loneliness.


By creating a central online hub for amputees and those with limb difference to access the right support and learn more about the organisations who can help them, we can cover a greater geographical spread and community reach, bringing our community closer together.


Whether you’re affected by limb loss / limb difference or not, you can help shine a light on the issues faced and the great work that is going on in this space. Get involved by using the hashtags #LLLDAM and #limblosslimbdifference throughout April to help raise awareness and start conversations. You can also download some specially created social media graphics and find out more on the website here www.limblosslimbdifference.co.uk
