Support Us

There are many ways you can support us. A financial donation is always much appreciated and helps us to continue to host and manage the Disability Equipment Service website.

However, supporting us doesn’t have to mean giving us a monetary donation. You can help by just sharing what we do with your family, friends and colleagues. You can also link with us on Facebook and Twitter and share our work with your social media connections too.

Please see below for more details on how to support us.

We know, from experience, that lots of disability equipment ends up in landfill, in a garage or in the corner of a room and never gets used again. This is often due to not knowing how or where to dispose of such items. we are trying to ensure that all disability equipment is used all the time by people that need it. Our service enables people to be able to buy used equipment, allowing them to remain independent and not have to move in to residential care or require support at home.

We also know that there are times when you need to clear out a home due to the loss of a loved one or when the time has come for someone to move in to residential or nursing care and, as with many other things, you don’t have the time, space or frame of mind to have to deal with this equipment.

We are here to help and can often collect donated equipment promptly. The donated equipment is then cleaned and serviced before being sold with proceeds going towards the hosting and management of the service as well as giving 25% to our chosen charity, currently Guide Dogs for the Blind.

If you have equipment, large or small, that you would like to donate to us, then please contact us and we’ll see whether we can help.

If you have found our service beneficial and would like to help us keep the service running in the future by giving us a donation, then please send us a cheque, made payable to Mr D Smith, to:

Disability Equipment Service Mr D Smith 9 Shire Place Redhill Surrey RH1 6DN

Alternatively, please contact us to discuss other ways of making a donation to the service.

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.
