Limb Loss Capacity Building Project South Australia


The Limb-Loss Capacity Building project works to reconnect people with limb loss to their local community and workforce through establishing a tailored information toolkit and providing education to individuals to manage the functional impact of their disability/limb-loss and maximise their potential. The toolkit will consist of fact sheets, webinars, and provision of connections to peer supporters.

Seven local area Peer Support Groups will be established in key regions of SA through training 40 peer-support volunteers; all of whom have limb-loss. People with limb-loss will play a significant role in all aspects of this project; including project management and governance, design, development and implementation.
