This resource came about because in 2005 new amputee, Diane Mulligan, met an existing amputee, Welly O'Brien, (see Welly dancing here) who inspired and supported her in coming to terms with her new body and new life. We hope this resource will allow you to access some of the support that Diane and subsequent amputees have found so useful.
We would like to thank the Scarman Trust in Brighton for assisting in the funding of this resource; John Ellis for hosting this site and James Allwright for design concepts.
