The Leonard Cheshire Research Centre is excited to be part of the £10m research
grant awarded to the Global Disability Innovation (GDI) Hub at UCL from the Department
for International Development (DfiD). This grant aims to widen access to assistive
technology for disabled people; the funding will support the AT:2030–Life Changing
Assistive Technology for All and will support six distinct projects. For
example, the funding will help to create an Innovation Hub in east Africa led
by the Government
of Kenya and the University of Nairobi, to test and trial new ideas. The AT:2030
project aims to achieve at least 10 disruptive technologies with potential for life-changing
impact, six innovative service delivery models and to reach at least 3 million
people by the end of the project.
