Check out our new chairs and standers, now being designed with removable growth panels to allow for at least four years growth. This is especially useful for kids we meet who are not able to access our equipment service easily, a very common issue! Well done to our wonderful team! Thanks to Gareth Brown for lots of other little pointers for our new and upcoming strapping systems and harnessing.

Lovely to have Madam Nancy, Head OT for the County come along with a group of final year OT students to spend time looking at our positioning equipment and so have a small teaching session with them. We wish them all the best in their finals!

We've really enjoyed hosting our first week long course in assessment design and fabrication of APT Cardboard Equipment for Persons with Disability. We are training OTs Physios and some parents of children with disability from 'SEP Special Education Profrssipnals' Nairobi , AMREF Africa and the Action Foundation Kenya, Nairobi. Great progress being made! It's great to network!

Annabelle and I have had the most incredible couple of days networking with Jean Westmacott of Cerebral Palsy Africa (CPA) & Paper Furniture Social Enterprise, (PFSE) Medstead. Jean and other CPA volunteers pioneered bringing Beville Packers innovative idea of assistive paper equipment into Africa in the 80s. She trained who trained me and they are the reason we have now made almost 1500 cardboard chairs in Kenya.


Annabelle was thrilled to share with the PFSE in supporting such work from the UK.


Coming away Inspired and so very grateful.
