Who are Remap?

Remap is a charity that helps disabled people of all ages to live more independent lives. Our national 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.

Our volunteers respond to thousands of requests for help every year and our service is provided free of charge.

A local branch in Plymouth has just launched and we need more volunteer support. Could you help us make things possible?
