About Carl Poll

Carl brought Small Sparks to the UK. He was a great man. Carl’s family and friends know that. But because Carl was such a modest man, nobody can understand the full extent of Carl’s contribution to the world.

Anyone of us would be proud to have achieved just one of the many things Carl achieved. Thousands of people now live more independent, more active and more fulfilling lives – because of Carl.
(From Simon Duffy’s Celebration of Carl).

Like us, Carl believed that together we are better and we are proud to have worked along side him many times and more importantly proud to call him a friend.
