The regional group of a national charity that aims to offer a better quality of life for disabled people of all ages has won a top award. 

Dumfries and Galloway REMAP members make one-off technical assistive equipment and adaptations to meet individual needs.

And their efforts have received national acclaim with the Scotland-wide John Goulder Award, presented to the team based on a handlebar adaptation.

The helpful creation will now assist a young girl within the area to independently ride her bike.

An Occupational Therapist working with the child identified a need for the specialist adaptation and, together with the REMAP team, this was then designed and created for the child.

REMAP is always looking for new members to join the team which meets on the first Wednesday of the month at the Child Development Centre in Nithbank.
