To whom it may concern,
I have utilised the services of Bennet Workplace for the last three years. I am a specialist teacher for children with physical impairments and our service provides specialist equipment, such as seating, for children at school, based on the advice of the occupational therapist (OT).
Our service would contact Bennet Workplace and ask for their advice. We would then arrange a visit to the school with the OT. I can always rely on Bennet Workplace to bring a range of chairs to the school assessment visit which are suitable for trialling with the child. These joint visits allow for a joined up and multi-agency approach to finding solutions so a child can fully access their school environment.
We have worked alongside the Company for all age ranges, from a child who needs access to a nursery setting, to primary and then on to secondary schooling. At all stages Bennet Workplace have offered sound advice and their after care service is prompt and reliable. The company have demonstrated a truly professional service, their knowledge about the equipment is first class and they work in a flexible way. When they meet with the children I have been impressed with the rapport that their employees secure with them, and if teachers or parents are present they are reassuring and sensible in their advice and approach.
Bennet Workplace’s equipment is varied and fit for purpose. The company are willing to think outside of the box to find solutions to a child’s equipment. They take into consideration the individual child’s needs and tailor make a perfect solution for them.
In summary their service has a well balanced approach. They are professional and friendly, efficient and creative in finding equipment solutions to ensure that children of any age are physically and happily able to access school life without any barriers.

I must say my assessment by Neil was excellent. I was a bit sceptical with doing this remotely but it went very well. Neil managed to identify all the issues I am having with my chair regarding the fixed arms and poor lumbar support and the difficulties I am having with the desk. I have had several operations over the last couple of years and the current situation of working at home full time has not been easy. I know this will help no end.
I/we would like to take this opportunity to thank your company in helping our daughter with a bespoke made chair. Our daughter has a condition called Bertolitti's Syndrome which effects the way that her spine is formed she has a fusion on the bottom of her spine which means her vertebrae are fused to her ilium and sacrum which causes incredible amounts of pain and also a curvature on the spine.It is very hard for her to sit for even a short amount of time without pain but with the help of the chair she is able to sit for longer periods with less pain. The chair is designed to not only raise her pelvis where needed but tilt it in a more comfortable position. This has been a god send especially in the current situation with lock-down. The gentleman was amazing in handling the visits with our daughter who also suffers with anxiety and could not have done anymore for her. She felt confident in saying what she wanted and we as a family would recommend the company to anyone. it genuinely has made such a huge difference for her and she is now able to go into her final year of school and concentrate more on her subjects rather than the pain that she is in.
Many thanks again to Matt and the team
"I spoke to Darren who was very knowledgeable and helpful. Due to the busy nature of my meeting he was happy to complete my DSE in two parts. During the assessment Darren was very thorough in explaining what the regulations are and the impact on my body if I didn’t adhere to these, he answered all my questions and supported me to make the right decision on my requirements. Darren offered me different solutions and left the decision making to me. It felt like a very personal service and Darren’s passion for supporting his client came across very clearly."
