TalkLink Trust Annual Report 2013 – 2014

The TalkLink Trust Annual Report was presented at our AGM held on December 3rd 2014, which was the same day as the United Nation’s International Day of Persons with Disabilities

Sustainable Development: The Promise of Technology was the 2014 theme of the United Nation’s International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The Annual Report is available here and in keeping with the UN theme “highlights how technology can impact the inclusion and contribution of persons with disabilities in social life and development on the basis of equality.” (www.un.org/disabilities/default.asp?id=1620)

The team at TalkLink is passionate about providing “best practice and innovative technological solutions for the full inclusion of persons with disabilities in their societies.” When we reflect on the highlights over the past year, the difference technology is making to the lives of the people we work with is inspiring. Every year we see new or improved technology innovations providing options to make communication easier for people with complex communication needs. We highlight some of these innovations in the Annual Report together with the support options we have developed in partnership with the communities we work alongside. The Promise of Technology is sustainable when we have the right technology, the right supports to use the technology effectively and the right attitudes to build an inclusive society.
