Cambridgeshire Technology Fund
The Cambridgeshire Technology Fund makes small grants to support charitable projects across Cambridgeshire and in Peterborough where the application of technology enables and improves people's lives.
Examples include the application of voice or sight interactivity with computers for the physically challenged, the use of smartphone apps to help blind and low vision people to find their way around and smart technology to assist the elderly to live more safely at home.
The use of new, creative and innovative technology solutions to enhance people's life experience are especially of interest to the Fund.
Communication for Blind and Disabled People received £1,000 to help blind and low vision people to find their way around Cambridge (including the clinics at Addenbrookes hospital) using smartphone apps.
