Our creative and inspiring team includes engineers, technicians, product designers, occupational therapists, fundraisers and administrators. We are led by strong values: we are creative, inclusive and practical, with our vision being to create a future where every disabled person has the products they want to live the life they choose.

We are really proud that we were recently awarded second place in the ‘Best Charities to Work For 2020’ list by Third Sector which is a reflection of our team highly rating the fact that we encourage activities that create strong teams and foster good personal relationships.
