Reach - Rep of Ireland Branch

Reach is a charity for children with upper limb differences with branches in Ireland and the UK. 

Reach is the leading children's charity providing support and information to those affected by upper limb difference.

There are many types of upper limb deficiency, the anomaly is so varied that obtaining support can be difficult. Many professionals involved in health care do not see enough cases to build up expertise. Reach hopes that by pooling the knowledge of its membership it can offer a level of support to all.  Reach provides the means by which parents and professionals can bring together experiences, information, support and guidance.

The Association was founded in 1978 in the UK. Originally called The Association for Children with Artificial Arms the charity has developed considerably. In 1988 the name was changed to "Reach, The Association for Children with Hand or Arm Deficiency" when it was realised that many of the members of Reach did not wear prostheses. 

Reach now offers support to families whose children have many and varied hand or arm differences.  

  • Raise awareness of upper limb difference.
  • Help children reach their potential & Families in need of support.
  • Promote the interests and needs of children affected by limb difference.
  • Ensure the charity is widely known and accessible.
