Blesma – The Limbless Veterans is the national charity and membership association for limbless serving and ex-service men and women and their dependants.  We help all wounded Servicemen and women who have lost limbs, the use of limbs or eyes, to rebuild their lives by providing well-being support and rehabilitation activities.

Blesma campaigns for our veteran’s rights and looks after individuals and their families by offering a comprehensive welfare system and financial assistance programme.  Rehabilitation, support, counselling and care are the four principle foundations of our organisation.  Together, we can help our men, women and their families face the challenges ahead with renewed confidence and self-belief.
