    About Us

    NEW website

    Assist-UK is a place where we can share the knowledge from our experiences starting blogs and websites. We made this site for anybody who wants to learn more about blogs and blogging.

    OLD website

    The former website of Assist UK led a UK wide network of locally-situated Disabled Living Centres. Most centres include a permanent exhibition of products and equipment that provide people with opportunities to see and try products and equipment and get information and advice from professional staff about what might suit them best. There are over 325 advisors throughout the network who respond to an average ¼ million enquiries made each year. Disabled Living Centres also provide a valuable source of information relating to access, design and equipment for daily living. This can be especially useful to carers, older people and healthcare workers, students and manufacturers.

    The Network

    Assist UK was the National network for advice on independent living equipment. Currently there are 41 member centres. Assist UK was the only organisation in the UK to connect clients, manufacturers, regulators and professionals.

    Role

    Assist UK supported the development of centres to meet national quality standards for product information and advice. In addition they provided a comprehensive range of services in support of members. These include Exhibitions, Conferences, Training, and Consultancy. Members received advance notification, priority reservations and reduced prices. Members also receive a discount.

    Membership

    Membership of the Assist UK network was open to voluntary and statutory organisations, individuals and the corporate sector.

    Support

    Assist UK was supported in its work by statutory and commercial organisations. A considerable part of that work was undertaken for the Departments of Health, Social Services, DNA and Employment Services.

    Their Vision

    To work towards the day when products for independent living are seen as part of everyday life.

    Their Mission

    To empower all individuals with knowledge and choice on available Assistive Technology products to optimise their independence.
