Innovation

We believe that disability innovation can change lives by forging new methods of participation, working with the poorest communities to harness the value of innovation.

Disability innovation has the potential to shape global policy; corporate practice; investment strategies; cultural norms; individual behaviour and life outcomes. The technology revolution provides opportunities for scalability and access like never before.
