SKIGGLE - Help For People Living With Dementia

Welcome to Skiggle. We exist to support disabled adults, children, their carers, and families.

We’re a registered charity, providing help and support to the disabled community, including people living with dementia, their families, and carers.

There’s no other disability charity like Skiggle in the UK. Our online charity features a community-driven marketplace where you can find spare specialist feed equipment and products.

We offer support for disabled individuals, by funding and operating a unique round-the-clock SOS emergency alert service. This provides a place for people to turn to if they urgently need a piece of specialist feed equipment, feed products, or disability care products.

We offer support through our online community marketplace, a place where you can connect with others within the dementia community and find much needed care-based essentials.

If you happen to be without an item you require, our Emergency SOS service puts out a call to our community. We also offer help to people who are caring for those with dementia to turn to in times of need, through our active Facebook group.

Our marketplace is ideal if you are looking for items and supplies such as:

  • Mobility aids, including walking frames or walking sticks
  • Incontinence products such as pads, pull ups, incontinence sheets
  • Feeding products including dysphagia supplies. These could be cups, cutlery and thickeners

If you’re looking for a charity which is supporting people with dementia, then join the Skiggle community today.

Charity Development Manager, Helen has personal experience of supporting someone with Dementia as her grandma was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Dementia 4 years ago. She has said that:

"While the grandma that I grew up with may be lost behind the haze of Dementia, the grandma I have gained is possibly living her best life. Her imagination has become her reality and so she tells tales of travelling to far out places, eating new foods and staring in TV shows [...]

Her life may be different now, but her new life certainly comes before her disability."
