Plain Sailing for Herts Disability Sports Hub

Testing the custom boat seat at HDSH

We’ve been working with Herts Disability Sports Hub to make sure even more activities are available to people with different physical abilities.

The team at HDSH have been testing this custom made seat in their cata-canoe, which gives extra back and head support for sailors who can’t sit unaided. Before this custom seat, it wasn’t safe or practical for these sailors to participate. Now in our workshop 4 more seats are being made, so even more people can enjoy getting out on the water!

Helping to advance cancer research
Sample carousel in DEMAND's workshop

This spring we’ve been working on a new project for Medical Detection Dogs. They have been using a special carousel made by DEMAND in 2008 to train dogs to detect the tell-tale signs of cancer just using their incredible sense of smell.

A new carousel will speed up their research, which so far indicates that these trained dogs may be a faster and more reliable method of screening for certain cancers than the tests currently used by the NHS. We’re in awe of these incredibly talented dogs (& trainers!) and are proud to support this research which could benefit thousands of people in the future.

A new look for homepage

Last month our new website went live! It’s been a long time coming but with sponsorship from Imagine Estate Agents we were at last able to give our site the overhaul it deserved. We hope our new website will help people find us when they need support, and provide a place to share all of our life transforming project stories.

Keep your eyes peeled for recently completed projects along with our latest news and events, and remember to share with anyone you think could use our help!
