Over 700 care homes and dozens of households have already benefited from our Free Uplift Service.

We started by rescuing wheelchairs destined for landfill.

Now our reach is far beyond our original expectation.

How can you as an individual or organisation help support us continue to help people with disabilities overseas?

That is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Avoid landfill, lower your carbon footprint, help the planet and strangers overseas who desperately need the gift of mobility.

We offer four FREE U.K. wide uplifts for Care Homes and Households throughout the year.

  • End of Dec / Beginning of Jan – WINTER
  • End of March / Beginning of April – SPRING
  • End of June / Beginning of July – SUMMER
  • End of Sept / Beginning of Oct – AUTUMN

2. Individual Households Donating Equipment

  • As we grew our digital presence, people from all over the UK contacted us to donate equipment.
  • Many of the situations are heart-breaking yet at the same time uplifting that those individuals want to ensure that these items are not simply discarded. We arrange either to pick these items up or help arrange delivery to our warehouse, ready for the journey to a new home overseas.
  • Use the contact information below if you are able to donate any mobility aids.

  • Or are you a business with some additional space to join our existing network of drop off points

“Really happy to donate these as we get a lot of use of them and benefit from them here at home so why shouldn’t everyone around the world get use out of them.”

Robin, Cathkin House Nursing Home

 

“This is a fantastic opportunity to be able to help people who have absolutely nothing. It is a shame we have to move this stuff due to having no shortage space but at least we know in my heart of hearts that it’s going to a good cause.”

Sheila Inchaw, Manager, Craigilea Care Home

 

“This is something we really want to give and share what we can to those who have who are really in desperate need. If you have something you don’t need or use please give it to this charity, they well deserved it as they do great work.”

Mother Marie Claire, Sisters of the Poor.
