Can Technology Meet Your Social Care Needs?

Can Technology Meet Your Social Care Needs?

Technology often promises to make life easier, but what will the future look like for disabled people with complex care needs? What about when services are managed and monitored using algorithms, and robotic systems start to replace care workers? What if these tools were made to enable rationing and automation of care services? Alternatively, what if these technologies and services were designed by and for disabled people to promote Independent Living and meet their actual social care needs?

A group at Loughborough University wants to ask these kinds of questions and is looking for disabled technology users to collaborate on starting a research project.

If you are interested in getting involved you can contact social sciences lecturer Saul Albert at s.b.albert@lboro.ac.uk or telephone him on 07941 255210 or 01509 228876

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
