About us

Skiggle is a growing UK disability charity, which runs a unique SOS emergency alert service, facilitates an online marketplace, and runs a forum to support people across the disabled world. Our 7,000-strong network of members step up to help each other in times of need by answering SOS alerts and collectively working as a rescue service for the disabled world. If you’re miles away from home and your disabled child’s feeding tube breaks or a global pandemic affects your usual supply of equipment or care products, just send a completely free of charge SOS and Skiggle will help find someone nearby to come to your aid. Our aim is to grow the charity to such a point that, wherever you may be in the country, help will never be any more than 10 miles away. We also facilitate an online marketplace where hundreds of unopened pieces of equipment and various care products, can be safely donated, distributed, and shared among those in need. Not only does this give people somewhere to turn if they need sealed feed items, specialist disability equipment, or care consumables, it also helps cut down some of the huge amount of plastic waste that would otherwise end up in landfill. As a charity run solely by our two co-founders, Christine Singleton and Helen Taylor, we rely on generous donations and fundraising efforts to meet the annual running costs of providing a completely free SOS service and to secure the future of a unique charity for those who need it most.
