At Remap we recognise that many of the people we help are at particular risk from coronavirus. In addition, our free service is provided by a network of volunteers, many of whom are retired and at additional risk themselves.

Our priority is to keep everyone safe so we are avoiding face to face contact where possible. You can find our policy statement here. As ever, please contact your nearest Remap group for their advice.

Keep well and stay safe!

Oscar loves his new toys!

Posted 5 November 2015 in Stories

Many toys for small children have an electronic component that requires the child to operate a switch of some sort.  These can be tricky if you have cerebral palsy, so Remap volunteer Ian Midgley fitted some disability-friendly switches to Oscar’s toys.  The smile on Oscar’s face tells the whole story!

Oscar’s dad Simon says “Ian has provided Oscar with two switch adaptations for his toys that are absolutely fantastic. Oscar loves the toys and working with Ian has been an absolute pleasure. I cannot speak highly enough of what Ian has done and we really look forward to continuing to work with him.”

Nicky Wynn is the Senior Specialist Occupational Therapist who supports Oscar.  She says: “This is a great piece of work for this family. Oscar’s needs are quite individual and it’s challenging to find the right activities which are both stimulating, and accessible to him.”

Remap has over 800 volunteers who custom-make equipment for disabled children and adults.
