    Many of our users are on a fixed or low income, elderly, frail and isolated. We make them able to participate more fully in everyday activities and stay independent which in turn improves their quality of life. These improvements sometimes have an additional (though often unseen) value to their carers and families by providing respite periods throughout the day.
