Since 1932, we have been the only Armed Forces charity that supports limbless veterans for the duration of their lives. We help all wounded servicemen and women who have lost limbs, the use of limbs or eyes, to rebuild their lives by providing rehabilitation activities and welfare support.
Blesma campaigns for our veteran’s rights and looks after individuals and their families by offering a comprehensive grants and welfare system. Rehabilitation, support, counselling and care are the four principle foundations of our organisation.
The first world war led to the birth of nearly 18,000 charities, of which around 10 exist today. Blesma is one.
Since 1932, we have been the only national Armed Forces Charity that supports limbless veterans for the duration of their lives.
