I am a fundraiser. I spend my days asking large companies for support and donations. Apart from money, what three things would you ask a large company to donate to support disabled people? Many thanks.

    Hi Kiasian,

    That's a great and difficult question! Any money raised goes towards hardware/software usually so then it would be picking three items from that category which is incredibly hard as each individual has different specific needs, resulting in an array of technology & software.

    So I may not be able to give you three things, but one thing I would love to see is more support for adults with disabilities out there. So if charities could fund assistive technologists to go out into their local communities and assess anyone who felt they needed support through technology, and then help with the funding of the technology needed, that would be life changing.

    I hope this helps answer your question slightly, sorry I couldn't choose just 3 pieces of technology!
