Default Helping with disabilities.

I am a volunteer engineer for REMAP http://www.remap.org.uk/. We are a UK based charity and we make bespoke aids for anyone with a disablity. Our only remit is it must not be commercially available and we do it for free.

We have even made smoking aids so people can light their own cigarettes!

Very cool idea. I'm not aware of any similar organisation down here in Oz but I'm sure it would be worthwhile. Must give you a good feeling to be helping people out like that.

I agree with Cogsy. Great idea and would readily join if one was set up in Oz

I am sure if you contact REMAP they will willingly give you some advice.
