The primary objective of the Federation is to support and promote the welfare of all amputees. This includes offering peer support and encouragement when the going gets tough, and providing information and advice to help amputees achieve the quality lifestyle to which they aspire. There are nine Regional Societies affiliated to the Federation, all of which work towards the goals set by the Federation. These include:
Providing immediate support to new amputees and their families as they experience the trauma of amputation.
Providing ongoing support for all amputees, including education and advice with regard to rehabilitation, social and physical networks etc.
Ensuring that amputees receive artificial limbs and aids, the best of their respective kinds, and adequate training in the use thereof.
Fostering positive links and liaising with health professionals, government departments, service agencies and key community groups, to promote the welfare and well-being of amputees.
