About Us

The Otago/Southland Society was established in 1944 - one of the first of the current nine affiliated Societies of the Amputees Federation of New Zealand Inc. It has approximately 250 members and is administered by a Committee based in Dunedin. Membership of the Committee includes people from Southland and other areas outside Dunedin.

Services Provided by our Society

  • Hospital and home visits.
  • A quarterly newsletter, together with the national magazine, Purpose.
  • Information on support available to amputees.
  • Some financial assistance to members in need.
  • Coordination of visits by Limb Centre staff to Invercargill. These enable amputees in Southland to consult limb-fitters and have adjustments made to limbs without having to travel to the Limb Centre in Dunedin.
  • Issuing Total Mobility vouchers which entitle members to a 50% discount on taxis.
  • Social functions in Dunedin and Invercargill which provide an opportunity for members to meet fellow amputees and discuss common problems.
  • An annual golf day at Twelve Oaks in Mosgiel is a good social occasion for experienced and "would be" golfers.
