Amputee Association of NSW was established in july 1989 by a group of members from Sydney, Newcastle and Central Coast Associations. The NSW Association was formed as an umbrella group to give a more forceful voice on behalf of all amputees within NSW and to enable insurance coverage for volunteers on Associations’ business.
Recently we have established peer support training of volunteers throughout NSW with the assistance of Gwen Johnson RN who herself is a nursing trainer. These volunteer peer support visitors are available throughout NSW for visits to new amputees in hospitals, rehab centres or homes when requested. These visits are also available to those who are contemplating amputations. For more information check your local Association which are listed under Support.
