Charity information


MERU designs and makes products for children and young people with disabilities.

Some children have disabilities so complex that no available products meet their needs. MERU can assess their requirements and then design and build a specialist assistive item. This enables children and young people with disabilities to become more independent.

MERU also supplies a range of ready-made equipment to support people with disabilities and also the Bugzi micro powered wheelchair for children aged 1-5

Founded 1973
