New Assistive Technology grants from the Joseph Patrick Trust
29 July 2015
Muscular Dystrophy UK’s Independence through Technology appeal has raised £100,000 to date for a pilot scheme to provide assistive equipment. The scheme will focus on items for people who are losing muscle strength in their fingers, hands and arms, and therefore find it difficult to use touch-based technology due to limited movement.
To access this assistive equipment funding, applicants will need to complete a form and supply a letter of support from a healthcare professional (Care Advisor, Neuromuscular Nurse, Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist), and a quote for the item of equipment. The application will be considered by the Joseph Patrick Trust (the welfare fund within Muscular Dystrophy UK).
