Blesma, The Limbless Veterans helps all serving and ex-Service men and women who have lost limbs, or lost the use of limbs or eyes, to rebuild their lives by providing rehabilitation activities and welfare support. Since 1932, Blesma has been the UK’s only national Armed Forces Charity that supports limbless veterans for the duration of their lives.
Blesma continues to work tirelessly to provide practical, emotional and financial support to injured veterans and their families as they rebuild their lives. Blesma supports its Members, both young and old, for life. Just as Blesma are still caring for its World War II veterans, some having lived with limb loss for more than 70 years, the charity also looks after younger generations injured in recent conflicts, who have survived complex trauma injury and will need specialised support as they face the long journey ahead.
