The Enabled Futures Program sets out to established a strong cohort of students who are inspired to contribute to building a more enabling and sustainable future for all. Furthermore, students made professional relationships in Singapore and established a foundation of knowledge that they can apply to their careers regardless if it is disability related. Continuous opportunities are being developed to channel their new learnings towards contributing to the rise of social inclusion through Australia’s National Disability Insurance Scheme and Singapore’s Enabling Master Plan.

ENABLE TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM

 

Coverage of our Enable Technology Learning Program Launch in the Canberra Times

The cost and knowledge barriers are too high to access assistive technology such as mobility aids, computer accessibility software and sporting equipment.

To break down these barriers we have launched our Enable Technology Learning Program in collaboration with the Australian National University so that people with disability and the elderly can have a more fulfilling quality of life. Through enabling technologies people can invest their money into more fulfilling activities such as traveling the world, gaining higher education. Instead of activities that most people take for granted. Such as getting around or simply accessing information in our communityr

The program is an service based education program which puts the end user, people with disability at the forefront of design, development and commercialisation. At the same time providing high quality experiences for students to contribute to real, current accessibility challenges as part of their studies.

There are many ways to be engaged in the program, by proposing an idea you have, highlighting a particular challenge you or your clients face, as a student, a technical advisor or mentor, or provide support the work of the program contributing financial resources.  If you are interested in getting involved or would like any further information please contact us on the details below.
