Special relationship continues between the British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) and LimbPower

We are thrilled that Kiera Roche, Chief Executive of LimbPower, is supporting the British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) and are delighted that a special relationship between the two charities continues to grow stronger.


BRIT are honoured to champion their tremendous work to engage and support amputees and individuals with limb impairments and hope university and college teams taking part in the BRIT Challenge will choose LimbPower as their second charity to raise funds for, alongside BRIT.

LimbPower was launched in 2009 to engage amputees and individuals with limb impairments in physical activity, sport and the arts to improve quality of life and to aid lifelong rehabilitation.

In 2004, LimbPower became a national Disability Sports Organisation, sitting alongside WheelPower, Cerebral Palsy Sport (CP Sport), Dwarf Sport, British Blind Sport (BBS), Deaf Sport, Mencap Sport and Special Olympics Great Britain (SOGB). Through this association and their work with the Activity Alliance, formerly English Federation of Disability Sport and Sport England, LimbPower help amputees and people with limb impairment reach their physical potential.

Kiera has been a great friend to BRIT and has introduced many athletes to our work in support of young adult mental health. This has led to many LimbPower ambassadors and supporters joining our BRIT Ambassador family to help inspire and encourage students and young adults throughout the UK to take part in our annual BRIT Challenge.

“We are extremely proud of the continued special relationship between LimbPower and The British Inspiration Trust (BRIT). Both charities are delighted to be supporting each other.

Our vision is changing lives through the power of physical activity, sport and the arts, therefore the BRIT Challenge has the potential to involve students and young adults at university or college who are amputees or live with limb impairments.

Through our special relationship with BRIT we are keen to signpost and promote our work to increase engagement, sustained participation and promote local inclusion to help limb impaired adults, young people and children reach their potential. BRIT Ambassadors play a vital role in encouraging universities and colleges to enter teams in the BRIT Challenge and inspiring students and young adults to take part; I am delighted that many of these BRIT Ambassadors, who are athletes with amputees or have limb impairments, are promoting LimbPower and sharing their remarkable achievements in their chosen sport.

I hope universities and colleges taking on the BRIT Challenge will choose LimbPower as their second charity to raise funds for, alongside BRIT, as this will fund the vital support we deliver to the limb impaired community.”
