Engineers generally work either alone or in pairs from their sheds, garages or workshops going to the person that needs help.

An agenda will be issued about a week before the meeting, listing current tasks, discussion topics and location.

We always welcome new members to help with not only designing and making equipment but helping with publicity and many other tasks.

Essex South was re-established in 2020 and created a partnership with Essex Hackspace to enhance Remap’s ability to help more people in the south of Essex.

The chair is Shelley Taylor who can be contacted on and engineer volunteers will be most welcome.  Vivian Giddings has volunteered to be treasurer

As mentioned, the group will partner with Essex Hackspace
and will be able to use their facilities in Rochford/Hawkwell from early 2021, helpful for those volunteers eager to help but with limited facilities..

Our volunteers are experienced engineers or craftsmen with access to a wide variety of skills and expertise.  Essex Remap are four of 94 local groups spread across the UK.

Each piece of equipment is tailor made to suit the specific needs of the individual.

We like to work with health professionals like occupational therapists or physiotherapists to make sure the equipment we provide meets the needs of each person, but we are happy for anyone to approach us for help.

We are always happy to give talks and presentations and will tackle almost any task, large or small but appreciate a donation if you can afford it, to help cover travel and materials.
