What is REMAP?

REMAP is a charity which makes free gadgets, aids and devices for people both  young and old who have various disabilities. 

REMAP was  formed in 1964 by  Pat Johnson, an engineer working for ICI at their Billingham plant.   The story of the start of REMAP can be found here.

REMAP use the skills of experienced mechanical, electrical, electronic and computing professionals to design and makes technical aids, devices and equipment for  people of all ages and disabilities to use in their homes, schools, play areas and the workplace.

These devices are custom built to meet the specific mobility and communication needs of individuals and to improve their quality of life. Devices range from simple household items to help someone with arthritis through to complex electronic control systems.

REMAP operates nation-wide through a number of local teams known as “panels” the site you are you are looking at now is for the South Herts panel and we cover an area encompassing Watford, Elstree, St Albans, Hemel Hempstead and Tring.  You can find  your local panel by going here and entering the first part of your post code in the box at the top left of the page  (e.g. HP3)..
