#ConnectAbility is The Disabilities Trust's three-year fundraising appeal to raise £250,000 for life-changing assistive technology that will help disabled people live more independently. So far, this appeal has transformed many lives through funding equipment such as e-Readers and 3D printers.

This Christmas we hope to raise £5,000 to buy myGaze Power machines that enable disabled people to use a computer using just their eyes.

On 4th October 2017 we launched our first #Connectablity Hub at Shinewater Court in Eastbourne, East Sussex. This Hub is giving the people who live at Shinewater Court and disabled people in the local community a chance to try out this life changing technology for free, thanks to your kind donations.
