This equipment will be used for them to continue therapy at home giving them the benefit they need, building up their strength, motor skills and helping them learn to walk.

You should be very proud of what you do.

Mark Dickinson



Mark Dickinson, an amateur DIY enthusiast and veteran of the Royal Anglian Regiment, has been making the equipment as a more cost-efficient way of making early intervention therapy equipment more accessible for disabled children.

Mark set up the KatNat not-for-profit organisation because of his granddaughter Nathelene who has cerebral palsy. The private therapy ultimately ended up costing around £13,000, where Nathelene mainly used a tool called the Pikler Triangle.

Mark talked about the cost of the equipment that inspired him to make his own, he said: “My daughter told me that the piece of equipment she used was around £160 – it cost me around £30 to make myself.

“I decided after that that I would carry on making the equipment for those who need them. I hate seeing families who need this stuff going without, If they don’t have the equipment at home then they don’t get the same opportunity to grow really.”
