Join our volunteer engineer team making aids for the disabled that are not available to buy
DIY / Maintenance volunteer needed for Remap Berkshire
Remap is a national organisation, of which Remap Berkshire forms part and serves the Berkshire area.
Our volunteer engineers make aids for the disabled that are not available to buy. If a person with a disability, or their carer or medical practitioner, identifies the need for a piece of equipment which no one makes, then Remap will.
Our service is free to the user. When allocated a job, you will visit the client to understand the problem, design and make the aid in his own workshop, and give it to the client. The ability to come up with an original concept is vital; no one comes to us with a ready-made design! It would suit a skilled DIYer, model maker or craftsman with a workshop at home and a car to visit clients. The timing and duration of the work are flexible.
Although most volunteers are retired, some fit their volunteering around full-time work. This work will appeal to anyone who enjoys solving problems and making things. Take a look at the BBC news item about one of our projects below.
