No one should have to suffer through the loss of a limb alone and uninformed. One way to further your continuing education is to join a local amputee support group. Amputee Support Groups are a great resource of emotional support and education.
There are a number of amputee support groups throughout NSW and of course Australia wide. Contact details are available here for you to be able to get in touch with somone in your area.
“There is nothing like talking to another amputee. I can’t imagine going through this process without the help and emotional support I have received from other amputees who can relate to my own experience”
- To ensure that all amputees are provided with current and useful information.
- To raise awareness within the community of amputees and their related issues.
- To advocate for better relationships with government agencies, health care providers and other related organisations to ensure the needs of all amputees in the community are met.
- To build a network of trained volunteers to provide peer support to amputees and their families.
