The Douglas Bader Foundation exists to advance and promote the physical, mental and spiritual welfare of persons who are without one or more limbs, or otherwise physically disabled.
- The first initiative was realised in 1993 - the completion of the Douglas Bader Centre, a facility built at Queen Mary's Hospital, Roehampton, in West London to support rehabilitation services for amputees.
- The Centre which, following changes as Queen Mary's Hospital, is now called The Douglas Bader Rehabilitation Centre, provides a range of facilities and services for amputee members of the community, including a Walking School and Rehab Therapy Groups. Appropriately, this hospital had provided Douglas's medical care as an amputee for some 50 years. The Centre was opened by the Foundation's Patron, Diana, Princess of Wales, on February 25th 1993.
- 2005 saw the creation of a central resource information website for amputees, their families and friends, carers and healthcare professionals.
- To date the Limb Loss Information Centre has received many thousands of visitors from around the globe.
- Working closely with all charities, associations and organisations that assist and provide services or products to amputees, they aim to join up the support and information services currently offered to best pool resources and serve amputees in the most efficient and purposeful way.
