Full Description of Organisation

Designability is a charity that enables disabled people to live with greater independence.
We use a human-centred approach in the design, creation and provision of products to increase independence for disabled people. This is not just about products people need, but products they want to use.


Designing with disabled people in mind
Although other avenues may provide necessary products, they are not always easy to use or products people would choose to have.
We deliver choice by involving disabled people across our organisation and throughout the design process to create innovative product solutions not available elsewhere.


Developing new, helpful products
We create great looking, easy-to-use products that go beyond basic functionality. And we partner with industry to help as many people as we can – we’ve transformed over 300,000 lives to date.
As a charity, our mission is get the right products into the hands of those who need them. We build prototypes and develop new products in response to specific needs, in the hope that our products will inspire new markets to blossom.


A charity that designs
We do not receive any statutory funding. Our work relies primarily on voluntary donations. Every penny we receive from product royalties is put back into developing even more useful products for people that could benefit.
