Ambient Launches £30K Assistive Technology Grant to Improve Lives

Ambient have launched a new £30k grant for Assistive Technology to improve lives.

Ambient has set aside a £30,000 grant fund from its own monies as part of a new initiative to help increase independence and choice for the people we support in our services, through the use of assistive technology.

We recognise the positive impact of having access to such technologies, and actively encourage all Ambient services and their staff members to apply for a grant of up to £5,000 which could be spent on devices, hardware, and software.

Lee Hodgson, our Chief Information Officer, says:

“IT and technology sit at the heart of our agenda and this very generous fund provided by Ambient Support will help improve outcomes for many of the people we support. We hope to see measurable positive benefits across services, whether devices are put in place to help those with dementia, sight impairment, Dyslexia, or other disabilities and needs. The application process is very straightforward, and we welcome all Ambient services and the teams within them to apply.”

An incredible range of devices will be accessible to our services through this fund – including screen readers or dictation software, text to speech software, adaptive keyboards, braille displays, screen magnifiers as well as mobility aids, walkers, and wheelchairs.

Mark Milton, our CEO, says:

“Ambient Support is a vibrant, progressive, and evolving charity and this grant embraces technological innovation and drives it forward. Digital technology plays a key role in Ambient’s future and will help to improve the quality of services available for the people we support.”

Our Assistive Technology Grant Fund is now open and available until 31 March 2024.
