Hi Steve.

Anker do an excellent, incredibly sturdy Bluetooth keyboard and it's 
available for under £15 from Amazon.  It's a near full size model but has a 
built in rechargeable battery and comes with a 18 month guaranty against 
defects.  They mean what they say as well, their customer service is 
excellent and they are disability aware, so can advise on how to set up the 
products, should you wish to call them for help.

Anyway, the link is:
All the best, Ibrahim.

I've been asked if anyone has a recommendation for this? My colleague has 
tried one slide out and one flip style keyboard, but has found drawbacks.

The main issues are that:
1) The slider cases do not rest on flat surfaces without rocking, but they 
don't impede the ability to answer incoming calls;
2) Flip/wallet style cases might be flat in the pocket or on a table, but 
need to be opened before a call can be answered;
3) Pocket sized separate keyboards might fulfil both criteria, but it is 
another thing to carry around and lose;
4) The other main point is that it needs to pair up again automatically, 
once fully recharged;

It would be interesting to hear what other people use, and what you like and 
don't like about your solution.
