Are You Up for the Makerchange Challenge?

31 August 2016

Shaw Trust has teamed up with Barclays, and a number of other charities, to find innovative solutions to accessibility challenges for the Makerchange Event.

The event will see people with the best ideas brought together in London, alongside technology experts, to design, build and create prototypes of new gadgets and gizmos that overcome a series of everyday, real life challenges. 

Are you a disabled person who has an idea for overcoming an everyday challenge?  If you haven’t yet come up with an idea for your everyday accessibility challenge our team will help you generate one. The best ideas will be 3D printed. 

Do you support clients who might want to invent something to improve their life? Or perhaps you’re a staff member or family/friend of a disabled person, who has come up with an accessibility innovation?

Examples of challenges include relying on someone else to help carry a hot drink, difficulty in using a remote control or not having a sturdy enough case for your phone or tablet.

We’re calling for people to submit their challenges/ideas to (opens in new window) by Friday, 9 September. You can also submit any questions via this route. Please promote this, it’s a great opportunity.
