Physionet Charity

PhysioNet is a UK based humanitarian organisation dedicated to helping some of the most marginalised people in the world by supplying children and adults with disability equipment considered surplus or redundant in the UK.

The Rotary Club of Paignton supports Physionet by collecting redundant mobility aids from organisations and individuals locally, and feeding these into the area collection scheme. This equipment is then cleaned and repaired as required before being loaded into containers and shipped to various countries around the world.

More information on the Charity can be found on their website,  

If you have equipment you would like to donate, please complete the contact form, and Rotarian Julie Smyth will be in touch.
