We support veterans who have lost limbs, use of limb and an eye in and out of service.
We also support 100's of widows and families every year.
Our mission is to assist limbless veterans lead independent and fulfilling lives.
We are dedicated to assisting serving and ex-Service men and women who have suffered life-changing limb loss or the use of a limb, an eye or loss of sight.
The First World War led to the birth of nearly 18,000 charities, of which around 10 exist today. Blesma is one.
Blesma was founded in the aftermath of the First World War. In the hundred years since the Association and its Members have achieved much.
