An effective Collaboration To Facilitate an Innovative Recycling Project (Belief in Action)

📍 Main Stage (Stratford Suite)

14:15 – 14:45

In an innovative collaboration with a UK charity, Medequip has reduced its scrapping rates, improved its recycling rates and demonstrated exceptional consideration of its social and environmental impact.

The charity, Belief in Action, working with disabled children and adults in Romania, uses a loan scheme model to ensure donated equipment is ongoingly recycled. Additionally, they focus on upskilling the local Romanian team to develop self-sustainability in the appropriate provision of items.

The UK would do well to review its equipment recycling potential. However, this unique model provides an opportunity for other providers to reduce waste and benefit those for whom such equipment is completely unobtainable.

Are you Lying Comfortably: An Introduction to Sleep Posture in a sustainable service model.

📍 Main Stage (Stratford Suite)

11:45 – 12:15

Whilst it is accepted that an individual requires suitable seating to support posture at work and at home, there is little consideration for posture at night and sleep surface when we are sleeping and moving in bed. Including sleep posture within sleep-surface/equipment decisions could improve outcomes, reduce carer burden, and defer expensive equipment provision. This session will introduce attendees to the principles of sleep posture for their own wellbeing and provide insight into the impact on sustainability for the workforce and the economy.
