Remap

Objectives

Remap is a charity that provides custom-made equipment for people with disabilities, free of charge.  Its volunteers use their ingenuity and skills to deisgn and make pieces of equipment to help people with disabilities achieve independence or to enjoy activities previously closed to them.

Activities

Remap's 800+ volunteers are organised in over seventy local groups across England and Wales. The groups receive requests for help from disabled people and from medical professionals such as occupational therapists.

To help people with disabilities achieve independence and a better quality of life we provide them with equipment. Each item is tailor-made for an individual and is designed to help them achieve something not otherwise possible. We only provide this help when nothing is available through mainstream sources and give the equipment we have made, free of charge.

Our local groups need volunteers with ingenuity and a talent for making things, people to help with promotion, fundraising and project management and those with practical knowledge of the health sector, such as occupational therapists and physiotherapists.

Remap is funded through grants and donations.
