Essex Central - We cover the CM Post Code Areas
Engineers generally work either alone or in pairs from their sheds, garages or workshops going to the person that needs help.
Group meetings are held about every 6 weeks, on a Thursday starting at 19:30, normally at the Chelmsford CVS office. For 2020 meetings have been suspended due to the virus although a virtual meeting is planned.
An agenda is issued about a week before the meeting, listing current tasks, discussion topics and venue
We always welcome new members and the opportunity to give talks about the work we have done and how we can help others.
Examples of recent projects

Our volunteers are experienced engineers or craftsmen with access to a wide variety of skills and expertise. Essex Remap are four of 94 local groups spread across the UK.
Each piece of equipment is tailor made to suit the specific needs of the individual.
We like to work with health professionals like occupational therapists or physiotherapists to make sure the equipment we provide meets the needs of each person, but we are happy for anyone to approach us for help.
Scooter lift system to help get off the ground onto the mobility scooter
We are always happy to give talks and presentations and will tackle almost any task, large or small but appreciate a donation if you can afford it, to help cover travel and materials.
Remap is a charity which designs and makes, or adapts, equipment for people with disabilities if it is not commercially available. Anyone can contact us for help and all work is free, although donations are always welcome.
