LimbPower Launches New LimbTalk Video Series for Limbformation to Inspire and Support Children with Limb Loss and Limb Difference and their Families.

LimbPower, the National Disability Sports Organisation for amputees and people with limb difference, is proud to announce the launch of a new series of 11 beneficiary videos that showcase different aspects of living with limb loss and limb difference. The videos feature children, young people and their families who have participated in LimbPower’s events and programmes, sharing their personal stories and experiences of engaging in school PE, making friends as a disabled person, negotiating family dynamics, and more.

The video series aims to raise awareness of the challenges and opportunities that children and families with limb loss and limb difference face, as well as to inspire and support others who may be going through similar situations. The videos also highlight the positive impact that physical activity, sport, and art can have on the physical, social and psychological well-being of amputees and people with limb impairments.

The videos will be released weekly on LimbPower’s YouTube channel[1] starting from Monday 26th June 2023.

Kiera Roche, the founder and CEO of LimbPower, said: “We are delighted to launch this video series, which showcases the amazing stories of some of our beneficiaries. We hope that these videos will inspire and empower other children, young people and their families as well as educate the wider public about the realities of living with a disability. We are very grateful to all the children and families who agreed to share their experiences with us, and to our funders Starworks and partners The Youth Sport Trust who made this project possible.”
