Community Action Norfolk are sharing this information on behalf of the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk.

The Corn Exchange in King's Lynn is hosting West Norfolk Disability Forum's first Assistive Technology event on Monday, 14 September 2015.

Starting at 10am and finishing at 3.30pm, the event will bring together organisations and agencies who offer technological support and assistance to people who need it.

Cllr Tony Bubb, speaking on behalf of the West Norfolk Disability Forum, 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 year's event in direct response to feedback we have received at our Celebrate Ability and Winter Warmer events.  People wanted to find out more about the sort of equipment available and also wanted to be able to try it out for themselves.  This event will enable them to do just that, so that if they do commit to buying something they will be doing so on the basis of an informed decision."

The event is suitable for people with vision, mobility, hearing or learning difficulties or their friends, families or carers.  It is an opportunity to speak to manufacturers and suppliers of assistive technology and to receive a demonstration or try something to see if it is suitable.

Organisations already attending include Age UK Norfolk, Care and Repair, N-Able Assistive Technology, Remap and LILY.

The event has been organised and paid for by the West Norfolk Disability Forum and entry to the event is free of charge.
