Skiggle - providing help for disabled people

Skiggle is a registered charity providing help and support to disabled people, their families and carers.

Our online marketplace is intended to allow our friendly community to rehome much needed supplies, providing support for disabled adults and children.

So, are you looking for disability care products, care equipment or care-based essential items? If so, join the Skiggle community today.

Skiggle can help

We’re the only disability charity of its kind in the UK, and we exist to support people in unexpected and urgent times of need.

Because you never know when something essential might be forgotten, go missing, or need immediately replaced.

Our growing charity has a community of individuals across the UK who are willing to help others by providing and sharing consumables and equipment in times of need. Of the charities that help disabled adults and children, Skiggle are the only one to offer an Emergency SOS.

So whether you're running out of specialist feed, continence products, or suction catheters, Skiggle has a passionate community ready and willing to come to your aid.

Sharing in times of need.

124 Challenge

All of us at Skiggle were so inspired by the amazing success of Team GB at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo that we’ve decided to theme our first fundraising campaign of 2022 in their honour.

As our Paralympic superstars achieved a combined total of 124 medals, we want you to sign up to take on your very own ‘124 Challenge’ for Skiggle.

Now, this could be anything from doing 124 star jumps to 124 laps of the local park in your wheelchair, to even running 12.4k once a week for a month. The whole point is for you to showcase your own abilities with no challenge being too big or too small. #124challenge

We’d love you to get involved in any way you can & share your sporting (or non-sporting) achievements with us. Anyone who signs up to Skiggle’s ‘124 Challenge’ will receive their very own bespoke medal to celebrate their achievements! 

Donations

We rely on outside support so are immensely grateful for every donation we receive.

You can donate as an individual, a trust or company. Your support will help us to:

  • Ensure vulnerable families and carers can send an SOS in difficult times
  • Reduce waste and relieve pressure for supplies on the NHS
  • Support a growing community of carers deal with challenging times

Thankyou

Introducing James

We'd like to introduce you to James, the inspiration behind Skiggle!

We’ve obviously talked about him before and shared our family stories but we’ve always tried to protect him by never posting any photographs.

Well, now that our wonderful young man has turned 17 he wants everyone to get to know him – he just loves being centre of attention! As my husband said, “If he was able to, he’d no doubt be drinking with his mates and would probably be all over social media 😂"

You can find out more about him here

James would love for you to send him a "HELLO" as while he might not be able to read the messages for himself, he certainly loves us reading to him 👋
