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 who 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.
Our service relies on the generosity of people donating their equipment to us. We are based in Surrey and do our best to collect equipment from our local area. We are also really grateful if people are able to drop equipment off or have items delivered to us as this helps keep our running costs down and further benefits the charity we support, currently Support Dogs, a charity that provide, train and support assistance dog partnerships for people with autism, epilepsy and physical disabilities.
