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.

Christmas Bauble

Those of us in the disability/special needs world understand the importance of the senses to our loved ones. Textures, colours, shapes, and sounds all play a crucial role in taking a simple object and transforming it into something magical – all through the power of imagination and storytelling.

So, we’re absolutely delighted to have partnered with the fantastic people at Barton Grange Garden Centre near Skiggle’s HQ in Lancashire to create our very own bespoke Skiggle Christmas bauble. 

If you can’t get to Barton Grange’s amazing Christmas grotto to buy your own charity Skiggle bauble, click below to get your hands on one! 

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 👋
