Promoting Independence and Contributing to Safeguarding
Technology can make a difference to people with all kinds of abilities. From managing risks such as fires or falling, to aiding communication and helping to deliver greater privacy or dignity, technology can enable people to have more control over the way they live their lives. With public sector funding under increasing pressure, it is more important than ever that we realise the potential of enabling technologies to make a significant and positive difference to the lives of people with disabilities, and help our health, housing and social care systems to support their needs effectively.
