Current projects 

The Involve Project worked with individuals with Autism, their parents/carers, organisations and Animate 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 persons perspective.

The Inspire Project working in collaboration with Plymouth Highbury Trust provides training / mentoring so that staff are confident and skilled to use technologies whilst 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 / independence in palliative / end of life care. The project highlighted the need for effective communication skills in supporting end of life care; including those with dementia, learning disability & other specific communication needs.
