Remap is a unique national charity that brings together two sets of people: volunteers who are skilled at making things, and people with a disability that could be eased by a piece of specialist equipment. The result each year is over 3,000 pieces of custom-made equipment which help transform the lives of disabled people.
Thankfully, disabled people can buy equipment to help overcome some common problems, but often a “made to measure” solution is required. This is where Remap’s army of ingenious inventors comes in. They design and make equipment and gadgets for young or old alike and these are then provided free of charge. The aim is always to help people achieve independence and quality of life, filling the gap where no suitable equipment is available commercially.
So whether it’s helping Ian overcome his virtual blindness or enabling Bob to drive off-road, helping Abbie compete at the Paralympics or fixing toys so Oscar can play with them, Remap is there to provide a solution.
