Assistive Technology Consultation
March 21, 2014 Leave a comment
Warwickshire County Council are gathering your views on Assistive Technology.
The term Assistive Technology is used to describe the wide range of equipment, technologies and services that enables people to remain independent and exercise choice and control. Assistive Technology can be used to assess, manage and mitigate risks so people stay safe from harm and provide support and reassurance to carers. It covers a broad range of solutions from low technology assistive products such as jar openers and talking tins, through to community alarm services and digital services such as mobile phone applications.
It doesn’t matter if you have never used Assistive Technology, your views are still valuable to us. The findings from this consultation will be used to inform the development of a draft Assistive Technology Statement of Intent; which will set out how we will develop Assistive Technology services in the future. This will form part of our All Age Disability Statement of Intent which will be subject to full public consultation during 2014.
