Striving to make equality a standard.
Following ten years' service with The Royal Air Force, our founder Gavin Neate commenced an 18 year career with Guide Dogs UK as a Guide Dog Mobility Instructor. His comprehensive knowledge of visual impairment and increasing interest in new and ground breaking assistive technologies led him to create Neatebox.
Since founding the company in 2011 the company has grown in services, staff and ambition. However, one thing has very much stayed the same, Gavin and his team's focus on improving the opportunities available to an increasingly knowledgeable and engaged disabled population.
The biggest milestone in the company's history has been the official launches of 'Button' and 'Welcome' in Summer 2017. Both products are free for their users and have been designed to support as many of the 13 million disabled people and their carers as possible. Their development is a direct result of Neatebox striving to promote equality and the provision of services which support both the user and the people whose job it is to provide them with a service.
