Life after traumatic injury can be challenging. Blesma is here for all serving and ex-Service men and women who have experienced loss of limb, use of limbs, hearing, sight or speech, either during or after Service
As an association, our beneficiaries are our Members. Membership categories are:
Ordinary Membership includes those who have lost limbs in service and those who have lost the use of limbs as a result of service. It is also open to those who suffer a permanent loss of speech, hearing, or sight of an eye. Service must have been in any branch of Her Majesty’s Forces or Auxiliary Forces.
Associate Membership is open to all ex Service men and women who lose a limb or sight of an eye other than through service-related causes. In 2016, Members voted to broaden the membership criteria to veterans who suffer loss of use of a limb or limbs through a traumatic incident. It is also open to all men and women of civilian status who lose a limb or sight of an eye as a result of War Service or enemy action.
There is no difference in the services offered. All Members have the same access.
