Donate your equipment to help support an assistance dog charity.
We are now raising funds for Support Dogs, a charity that provide, train and support assistance dog partnerships for people with autism, epilepsy and physical disabilities. We are thrilled that we have already raised our initial target of £2000 and are supporting a partnership involving Fudge, a Disability Assistance Dog. We are continuing to raise funds for Support Dogs and aim to raise another £2000 to support a second partnership.
Previously, we have been proud to raise £10,000 for Guide Dogs, supporting 2 guide dog puppies throughout the first year of their lives.
More about these dogs can be found on our Facebook page
Donations help to support this website and raise vital funds for assistance dog charities
We’re Dave & Vicky, friends and business partners and we’ve been running the DES service for over 5 years now in our spare time and around other family commitments. It is only through monetary donations and donations of disability equipment that we are able to keep this website free for people to use.
Any equipment we receive is cleaned and resold with proceeds covering our ongoing running costs and with 25% of these held until we’ve reached our next charitable target. Please contact us if you would like to donate your disability equipment and help keep this website running as well as raise valuable funds for Support Dogs.
If you have used and benefited from our service and would like to make a financial contribution as a ‘Thank You’, details of how to do this are on our Support Us page.

See Clear Products
Control your household temperature.
See Clear visual aid thermostat stickers are designed to make controlling the temperature of heating easy. Compatible with heating and cooling systems.
The stickers have been designed with the elderly, partially sighted and blind in mind; in fact they are ideal for enabling easy temperature control for all users. The differing temperature zones can be clearly identified through the use of four colour zones each of which has embossed increasing bars which can be easily felt for by the user. Also included is an embossed, triangular indication marker to allow the user to independently adjust the thermostat to the desired temperature through both sight and touch.
See Clear visual aids are easy to apply. They come with an adhesive back, and once the protective backing is removed, can be applied directly to the dial of the thermostat.
There are a range of thermostats installed within homes across the UK. With this in mind, we have used the same clear and simple concept and adapted it to ensure that our stickers are compatible with a range of thermostats.
