Skiggle - About Us

We’re the only disability charity of its kind in the UK dedicated to helping people with disabilities when they need it most.

We fund and operate a unique 24/7 SOS emergency alert service and run an online marketplace where people can safely rehome and distribute disability care products and equipment. We offer help and support for disabled people directly through our website.

Emergency SOS alert service

Our website connects to an emergency SOS alert system where members can put out a call for urgently needed care essentials. Completely free of charge, Skiggle facilitates and filters each request out to members within the closest geographical area to the SOS in the hope that someone can provide help from their own surplus supply of disability care products. Make sure you give us your mobile number to use this service.

The Emergency SOS service is one of the key ways that Skiggle offer support for disabled individuals, carers and families.

Community Marketplace

The Skiggle online marketplace is a safe, fully regulated place where disability and care products can be rehomed and distributed free of charge and specific larger items can be bought and sold as appropriate. For your safety and the safety of others, you will be asked to agree to our terms and conditions relating to the movement of products when signing up.

For those wishing to use the marketplace following the loss of a disabled friend or family member, adding our Bereavement Angel to your items will help to ensure that any transaction is handled sensitively.

Facebook forum

Looking for advice or support? While there are charities that help disabled adults, the Skiggle Facebook forum is a popular and friendly space where families and carers can chat, ask questions, and recommend products and services to each other. We’re always listening.

"Everything about Skiggle is amazing from the simple idea of enabling us to share unused medical equipment that would usually go in the bin. I have been helped out by Skiggle users and I have also been able to help others out. Emergency help is another fantastic aspect of Skiggle, such a fantastic wonderful dedicated people who run Skiggle! Xxx"
