REMAP North East Wales is one of the 85 branches of the REMAP national organisation. REMAP is dedicated to making life easier, safer and more pleasurable for disabled people through the provision of devices that would not otherwise be available. We make no charge to the client for any device that we provide.
Each branch in REMAP comprises dedicated volunteers who give their time, knowledge and skills freely to help others. The volunteers are typically retired engineers and craftspeople who have the specialist skills needed for our work. We have no central premises, so volunteers work from their own homes.
Nationally, REMAP undertakes more than 3,000 cases per year and in a typical year our branch produces around 50-60 special devices.
REMAP North East Wales covers the area previously known as Clwyd, i.e. Wrexham, Flintshire, Denbighshire and those parts of Conwy north of the river. We meet monthly to discuss progress on cases and to share information. In addition to our volunteers, we have health and social care professionals (primarily OTs) on our panel who refer clients to us, advice on client needs and work with us on risk assessment.
