We are the only national Service charity that supports limbless veterans for the duration of their lives, offering financial and emotional support to them and their families. Since WW1 we have worked tirelessly to guarantee that our limbless veterans are not failed, forgotten or to left to fend for themselves.
Blesma offers advice & support to Members who have been fitted with prosthetics.
We have a dedicated Blesma Support Officer that focuses on Prosthetics matters.
Keeping fit and engaged after injury is vital for health and well-being.
Our activities and courses range from the relaxed to the action packed.
We offer our Members financial assistance with the additional hardships of disability.
We regularly contribute to the provision of wheelchairs, stair lifts, and home and garden adaptations so Members can remain as mobile and independent as possible.
We are experts in the War Pension, the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme, as well as a whole range of other allowances.
Our team offer advice and assistance on applications for entitlements, and aid our Members and Widows at War Pension Tribunals and AFCS Hearings.
The benefits system can be complex and leave people confused about what they are entitled to.
That’s why it’s essential to get the support you’re entitled to. Working out the benefits system isn't always easy, but it’s important not to lose out on money that could help you.
Blesma believes that there is life after limb loss and part of this includes helping our Members return to work.

Blesma Community Programme
The Blesma Community Programme offers free workshops run by veterans in schools across the UK with the purpose to inspire and motivate pupils from all walks of life.
Pupils hear first-hand the inspiring personal story of a veteran and then take part in a practical workshop, led by an experienced workshop facilitator, exploring the themes of adversity and resilience.
