18 Dec 2017
2017 is coming to a close and what a year it has been.
This year alone Simple Stuff Works was highly commended at the Staffordshire Chambers Business Awards as our global trade expands. Our products can now be found in homes in over 15 different countries.
Our award-winning animations have inspired professionals and families to talk more about postural care. Which lead to CEO Sarah Clayton, MD Anna Waugh, Rachel Wright (Born at the Right Time) and Pippa Hawkes (BSN Associates) celebrating at the BHTA Award ceremony where Simple Stuff Works was highly commended for our family-focused, accessible marketing.
But that is not all. We have continued to train practitioners, nationally and internationally because we are passionate about ensuring everyone in the multidisciplinary team are highly skilled in, not only postural care but the challenges of caring for a loved one with complex needs.
At the heart of it all, Simple Stuff Works remains a family-run business passionate about postural care.
Our vision is of a world where body shape distortion is the exception, not the norm. In which every person (young and old) with limited movement has bespoke, twenty-four-hour postural support enhancing their quality of life and access to the world.
Our mission is to be the world’s leading provider of high quality education, therapeutic positioning equipment and support; putting families and individual’s needs at our centre.
At Simple Stuff Works, we hope to do this:
- By growing our education and equipment distribution to over 50 countries.
- With a first-class reputation amongst people who use night time positioning.
- By innovation and continually improving all aspects of our work; striving to stay ahead.
- Through our informative, interactive and personable social media presence.
- By providing education programs that are accredited, recognised and respected in the UK and internationally.
- Through our inspired and motivated workforce who share our dream and visions.
And so, we step in to 2018 excited by the year ahead. Firstly, Stephen Kirkpatrick our fantastic new Business Development Manager, will be joining us and we can’t wait to have him on board.
Then January marks a big moment in our company’s history.
Simple Stuff Works will launch a new revolutionary product.
This new equipment will transform the way in which people can implement therapeutic positioning and will be the first innovation in the field in nearly a decade.
But that is just the start.
In 2018 we will be delivering training at the OTAC events across the country, working alongside leading seating specialists to highlight how important therapeutic positioning is over a 24-hour period. Then we will be spreading our wings to Israel, New Zealand, America and beyond as we teach alongside internationally reknown companies providing postural care training.
We will also continue to make information accessible to the people who need it most – families. Not just information about postural care in general but about their own child in particular. And so, we are supporting the capture of data around movement and body symmetry of children.
Because it is only when we can measure outcomes that we can show the life-changing affect of our products, training and support.
Simple Stuff Works is growing and thriving but don’t worry, we won’t change. We still have the same simple passion purpose we had right at the beginning. We will continue to forge partnerships with Rachel at Born at the Right Time and other likeminded charities, companies and campaigns.
Because at our heart, we are committed to ensuring the wonderful families we support are at the forefront of everything we do.
From all of us at Simple Stuff Works,thank you for journeying with us in 2017, Merry Christmas and here’s to a fantastic year ahead!
