REMAP works with a nationwide network of volunteers to support and help people with disabilities to achieve much-desired independence in some aspect of their lives, or to enjoy leisure opportunities previously closed to them. They provide equipment tailor-made by volunteer experts that are given free to the people who need them.
Because, as well as being inventive and skillful, they also care about people in their local communities who have disabilities – even a combination of them – which mainstream services have not been able to counteract. Their volunteers think these people matter a great deal – enough to give their time and energies for free, taking the trouble to ensure that each item they make really suits the individual person concerned and does the job it is meant to do.
For example just because an engineer craftsman is disabled does not make him unsuitable to volunteer to help us. In Hereford a blind carpenter makes highly complex wooden items with the help of a driver/ measurer.
Remap already has 85 panels across England, Wales and northern Ireland, and helps over 3,000 people with disabilities each year.
