London, United Kingdom — June 26, 2024

LimbPower, a leading charity and National Disability Sports Organisation dedicated to empowering amputees and individuals with limb differences, is thrilled to announce the release of the new Athletics Top Tips for Providers Infographic. This groundbreaking resource aims to support children with amputations and limb differences, as well as the coaches, teachers, and instructors who work with them.

Key Highlights:

  1. Collaboration: LimbPower has partnered with England Athletics, UKA (United Kingdom Athletics), and BACPAR (British Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Amputee Rehabilitation) to develop this suite of infographics.
  2. Enhancing Engagement: The infographics provide practical guidance on coaching techniques, adapted equipment, and inclusive practices. By disseminating this knowledge, we aim to enhance engagement in physical activity and sports among children with limb differences.
  3. Accessible Information: The Athletics Top Tips for Providers Infographic covers topics such as:
    • Coaching athletes with amputations or limb differences
    • Prosthetic equipment considerations
    • Sport-specific adaptations
  4. Empowering Providers: Coaches, teachers, and instructors play a pivotal role in fostering confidence and participation. These infographics empower providers with actionable strategies to create an inclusive environment.


Kiera Roche, CEO of LimbPower: “We’re excited about the impact these infographics are already having. By collaborating with experts and organisations, we’re ensuring that every child, regardless of their limb difference, can thrive in sports.”
