Our programmes, informed by research, are strategically designed to test 'what works'. Alongside local partners in countries where the need is greatest we learn and refine our thinking, before sharing it through our teaching and advocacy.

Our team is informed by our development programmes and our research informs our practice. Our flagship programme AT2030 is funded by UK aid to improve access to life-changing Assistive Technology (AT) for all, investing £20m over 5 years to support solutions to scale.
