Practical/DIY

Remap makes bespoke aids and adaptations for the disabled that are not commercially available to help them in their personal care, hobbies, mobility, sport etc. Remap has been operating nationally since 1965 and consists of about 80 Panels (branches) and 4000 volunteers.  The Berkshire Panel covers Berkshire. When assigned a job, the volunteer will visit the client (with medical professional if appropriate) to agree what is required, design and make it, and then hand it over to the client. Depending on complexity, several visits may be required. Jobs are assigned as they are received from clients to which ever volunteer is available, has the right skills and lives in the neighbourhood (to minimise travel). Hours are determined by the volunteer around their own and the client's availability, and so can be arranged around a full-time job.
