“I’m delighted to be able to announce the launch of the Tunstall Academy. The Academy brings together a range of initiatives designed to raise awareness of the value and potential of technology across the health, housing and social care landscape, and to increase the benefits to users, carers, professionals and providers. As a market leader we have a responsibility not just to innovate as an organisation, but also to drive change across the sector as a whole. Our investment in the Tunstall Academy is one of the ways we are seeking to support and develop the people who will help to create a better future for us all.”
