Remap

Remap is a charity that helps disabled people of all ages to live more independent lives. Our network of skilled volunteers design and custom-make equipment free of charge.

We help to improve quality of life and increase independence for disabled people of all ages, providing solutions to everyday problems when there is nothing commercially available.

We design and custom-make equipment for each individual because everyone’s needs are different.

Our network of skilled volunteers respond to thousands of requests for our help every year and we provide our service free of charge.

Remap is a unique national charity brings together two communities of people: volunteers who are skilled at making things, and disabled people who find themselves needing a specialist piece of equipment.  The result each year is around 4,000 pieces of custom-made equipment which help transform the lives of disabled people. 

Thankfully, you can buy lots of equipment off the shelf these days, but often a “made to measure” solution is what’s needed. 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 watch a football match with a severe visual impairment or enabling Robert’s wheelchair to turn in a tight corner, helping four year old James to be heard in class or fixing toys so Oscar can play with them, Remap is there to provide a solution.

To be eligible for help from Remap, the equipment must be for a disabled person (or someone with a long term health condition) and it must be something that can't be bought in the shops or provided by the NHS or Social Services. Our service is provided for free and there are no income restrictions on asking for our help.

We can make equipment from scratch or we can modify existing equipment to better meet your needs. If we are modifying equipment, we will need the permission of the equipment owner.

To get our help, you can refer yourself for our service or someone can make a referral for you. Send us an email to data@remap.org.uk, call our friendly team on 01732 760209 or visit our website for more information: www.remap.org.uk

FAQ's

Can you help me?

We can help disabled people who need a piece of equipment that isn't available to buy. If this is you, please send us an email with your postcode to data@remap.org.uk. We'll connect you with a local volunteer so you can talk with them about your needs in detail.

How much does it cost?

We provide our service at no charge; our equipment is all given away for free. If you're able, we always appreciate a donation as this allows us to help more people.

What happens when I make a referral?

We will put you in touch with a local volunteer maker. They will talk through your needs with you in detail, then design and make a piece of equipment to help.

How can I get involved?

We're always looking for people to help us make equipment, health professionals to offer medical advice, and people to help run our local groups. Please visit our website to find out more about volunteering with us: www.remap.org.uk

As a small charity, we are so grateful for each and every one of our supporters. The best way to make a donation is to visit our JustGiving page here: www.justgiving.com/remap/donate
