Welcome

This web site has been developed to assist all amputees in finding helpful and current information on support and assistance available to amputees in New South Wales. We are also very pleased to invite all amputees regardless of where they may be to visit our site and have a look around. Please contact us directly if you have any comments about or suggestions for improving this site, we are always happy to hear from you. There is also an online forum which is administered by Limbs 4 Life in Victoria; here you are able to join in on some very interesting and informative discussions with other amputees from around Australia and other parts of the world. We hope you enjoy exploring our new web site.
