April 2022 : Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month
Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month is an annual campaign, which is the result of brilliant collaboration from multiple UK limb loss and limb difference organisations.
The objective is to raise awareness and educate about the realities of living with limb loss and limb difference.
The campaign comes at a particularly important time. The Covid-19 pandemic has had a disproportionate effect on people with disabilities, and many describe increased feelings of social isolation.
The last few years have been an especially difficult time for charities. Many have faced greater than ever demand on their services at a time when they have lost out on fundraising opportunities due to the pandemic.
How can you get involved?
Spread the word
Social media is an invaluable tool for raising awareness and educating others with insights into what life is like for those who have experienced limb loss or limb difference.
Please share content with those who follow you. Every post will help spread the word and raise awareness so please comment, like and share!
