West Norfolk’s Disability Forum hosted an assistive technology day on Monday in an effort to help more people live independent lives.

The event, which took place at Lynn’s Corn Exchange, was aimed at people with vision, mobility, hearing or learning difficulties, as well as their friends, families or carers.

Among the organisations who attended the event, which was attended by West Norfolk mayor Colin Manning and his wife Julie, were Age UK Norfolk, Care and Repair, N-Able Assistive Technology, Remap and LILY.

Borough councillor Tony Bubb, who is the forum’s chairman, said: “Assistive Technology is so important these days.

“It really can make such a difference to people lives, helping them to maintain their independence and enjoy their own homes.

“We organised this event in direct response to feedback we have received at our Celebrate Ability and Winter Warmer events.”

The assistive technology day was organised and paid for by the West Norfolk Disability Forum.
