AYL Treasure Hunt – Remap

Aug 03, 2020

* This post is supported by Remap, but all opinions are my own. *

Like many events, the coronavirus outbreak resulted in Naidex 2020 being rescheduled to September 15th and 16th 2021. But until then, we will be sharing a new blog post every week with information on the AYL Treasure Hunt!

This exclusive activity involves working with 17 trusted exhibitors to provide attendees with the opportunity to discover and visit stands they otherwise might not have known about. You will have to wait until nearer the time to learn how you can take part, but for now, I am proud to introduce the fifth exhibitor - Remap!

Remap are a charity that design and create, custom made equipment for people living with disabilities which promote independence and accessibility. Founded in 1964 by Pat Johnson, an engineer who set out to help his disabled sister live an easier, more independent life. After seeing the difference these simple adaptations had on his sister’s quality of life, Pat teamed up with fellow engineers to try and bring similar improvements to other people’s lives. Little did they know that they would eventually complete around 3,500 projects every year!

Due to the nature of their services, Remap understand that in order to provide solutions to everyday problems when there is nothing commercially available, they must support people of all ages, regardless of their income They also provide this service free of charge by relying on donations, fundraisers and a team of volunteers. Particularly engineers who can offer their time to help people with a range of both physical and mental disabilities across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, or Scotland via their sister organisation.

To see just how much their adaptive solutions could impact your quality of life, check out their customer stories. This powerful collection of testimonials proves that by thinking outside the box, independence and enjoyment can be achieved.
