One of our volunteers will go to the person that needs help, often with the occupational therapist or other health care professional. We will discuss what is required and then design and make, or adapt the equipment for that person.
Volunteers may need to make several visits to get the equipment exactly right and they will explain how it should be used to ensure its use is safe.
The equipment is supplied free of charge. if there are any problems with it in future please contact us and we will be happy to modify it or adjust as necessary. Equipment no longer required should be returned to Remap so that we can possibly use it to help others.
Although the Remap service is free, many people like to support the charity by making a donation, circulating leaflets, letting others know how we have helped, or, by volunteering themselves.

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.
Remap is a charity which designs and makes, or adapts, equipment for people with disabilities if it is not commercially available. Anyone can contact us for help and all work is free, although donations are always welcome.
