Empowering amputees in life through sport


Our purpose

START foundation empowers amputees in life through sport, by providing grants to purchase sports prosthesis or adaptive equipment, to help them achieve their sporting dreams.


“The appreciation and gratitude I have for START for literally giving me a 'start' is beyond words. It has been an absolute game changer for my life, so thank you!"

Liam Twomey. Grant Recipient

"Thanks to START Foundation’s support, we were able to provide Liam with a carbon fiber foot that has enabled him to participate in sporting activities at the next level. Liam is now able to look ahead with confidence.”

“For the first time since losing my leg, I felt light on my feet; a feeling I thought I would never experience again and can only be described as, “Pure joy!”

Andy White. Grant Recipient
