RollUP Solutions, is a student run non profit that aims to remove social and physical barriers in the community by providing mobility devices that are affordable for all.
Wheelchairs can cost up upwards of several thousand dollars! This makes it very difficult for some people to buy wheelchairs. On the other hand, many working devices are thrown out and end up in landfills every year! This is because people do not know how to discard a wheelchair, as they are quite large and there are very few places that accept wheelchair donations. So on one end, people who need wheelchairs cannot afford them, and on the other end, people are throwing away perfectly good wheelchairs! RollUp Solutions bridges this gap.
At RollUP we collect gently used devices from the community, work with our partners at Goodwill to refurbish them and we sell or donate them to those in financial need. We want to make sure that whoever needs a mobility device can get one, whether it’s purchased by an individual at a 95% discount or donated completely free of charge!
RollUP believes that everyone in our community who needs a mobility device should have access to one. In our community we also hope to:
1. Reduce the stigma surrounding used mobility devices and other disabilities, be they visible or invisible.
2. Provide meaningful work opportunities for those who face barriers to employment.
3. Limit the mobility device industry’s carbon footprint in London and beyond.
