About this event

This event brings together a number of projects looking at developing assistive technologies, including:

  • The partnership between Hereward College and the University of Warwick, which aims to enable young people at the college to tailor the design of tools and accessories to their own requirements
  • Dad in a Shed, the story starts in November 1983, when Dad had a son, who turned out to have Muscular Dystrophy!  The Dad and his shed churned out lots of gadgets and gizmos for his son over the years, everything from a swively chair so he could shuffle round on his bum as a toddler to an all-electric go kart so he could play with his friends
  • The  Hereward Access Centre provides holistic, multidisciplinary assessments for a range of individuals in need of assistive technology services and non-medical helper’s support
  • CarePair is a free service helping carers and employers find each other as quickly and easily as possible, suggesting the most appropriate pairings based on common interests.
