Current projects 

The Involve Project worked with individuals with autism, their parents or carers, organisations, and an animated theatre company to produce a Skills-Led Needs Assessment Toolkit. Training on the toolkit was delivered and included live theatre performances showing life from the person's perspective.

The Inspire Project, working in collaboration with Plymouth Highbury Trust, provides training and mentoring so that staff are confident and skilled to use technologies while supporting people. Using the Skills for Care Culture Toolkit to support change, embed personalisation, new ways of working, and person-centred approaches, and using our expert knowledge, we have up-skilled staff and given them the confidence necessary to use technology on a daily basis.

The Assistive Technology project, working in partnership with St. Luke's Hospice, demonstrated how using assistive technology can enable choice, dignity, and independence in palliative and end-of-life care. The project highlighted the need for effective communication skills in supporting end-of-life care, including those with dementia, learning disabilities, & other specific communication needs.
