Skiggle is a self-funded, non-profit on-line community that was launched 17.08.16 by a mother whose young son, with Cerebral Palsy is the inspiration behind the idea. Their aim is to help people, of all ages, who are involved with disabilities either in a personal or professional capacity. Their primary goal is to create a mutual support network for users to provide each other with practical help. They achieve this through the creation of an online SOS solution system for care-based essentials where members can request immediate assistance in unforeseen circumstances.
