Equality through technology

Style Acre is a supported living service for people with a learning disability and autism in Oxfordshire.

The service uses technology in innovative and creative ways to enable equality for the disabled people it supports.
For example, Style Acre worked with IT specialists and the NHS to identify the most effective system for a person who was unable to communicate their needs. After significant research and trialling systems, the person was able for the first time to use a communication aid with pre-set phrases to tell staff what they needed, for example if they needed pain relief. This has had a large impact on the person’s ability to self-advocate  and to advance their rights.
