Limbs 4 Life is delighted to announce the launch of our Victorian Empowerment Project for amputees. This project has been funded by the National Disability Insurance Agency as part of the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building program. The Amputee Empowerment project works to reconnect people with limb loss to their local community.
We are thrilled to announce that Mike Rolls, a long-term Limbs 4 Life Peer Support Volunteer, has taken on the role as Program Manager for this exciting initiative.
Using lessons learned from the South Australian Limb Loss Capacity Building program, this Victorian initiative will:
We will engage people with limb loss in the development of activities and materials using a co-design approach; making sure that our community has the opportunity to share knowledge and insight throughout project delivery.
As part of the Amputee Empowerment Project we will be conducting research with ethics approval from Monash University.
We are seeking your feedback. If you are a person with limb loss living in Victoria, we want to hear from you. Your feedback is important to us.
