We are committed to delivering our essential services as safely as possible. We will continue to ensure the safety of the people we serve, their occupational therapists, carers, and the Remap volunteers who design, make and install specialist equipment. We will continue to monitor Government and NHS guidance regarding social distancing and Personal Protective Equipment and we will undertake sufficient risk assessments.

We are still here, able to provide help, and we will continue to take special measures to do so.

Ball-throwing device

Posted 18 June 2015 in Stories

Lorna has three different jobs and owes a great deal to her partner Eli the dog, on whom she relies for a huge variety of tasks. Lorna has cerebral palsy, so uses a wheelchair to get around, but was unable to throw a ball for Eli.

She turned to Remap South Hertfordshire for help and volunteer Brian Bloomfield constructed a ball-hurling mechanism to attach to Lorna’s chair.

Now, when she takes Eli into the nearby park, Lorna can entertain him in a way he loves. ‘Brian is an absolute gem,’ says Lorna. ‘It’s wonderful to be able to give Eli a reward he enjoys so much.’
