Assistive Technology Question

Hello, 

Does anyone have any information on grants for technology for older adults with a disability? E.g. iPads, Echo Dot etc. 

Or if anyone could advise me of where I would find information on this? 

Thanks

Vicky

    Welcome to the community @Vickyw221 Have you tried looking for a charity - which is linked to the disability - and see if they offer any grants? :)

    Hello and welcome @Vickyw221!

    Try searching for a charity that helps people with the condition. Alternatively what about trying to find out if the local council can help you or not? The DLF has a number of useful information sheets on various aspects of living with a disability. Take a look at their site or call them tomorrow for advice.
