Innovations in independent living

Following appearances elsewhere, Enabled by Design were lucky enough to be invited along to the inaugural Innovation Exchange event led by the Innovation Unit and supported by ACEVO, Headshift and the Cabinet Office. Innovation Exchange, through events and its everyday activity, has aspirations to help grow innovation in the third sector, bringing together like minded organisations and create something special.
For Enabled by Design, the event provided a more targeted networking opportunity compared to previous innovation orientated events such as MiniBar and the RSA‘s Networks Exchange. Having spent a day immersed in creative exercises (designed to encourage mixing and where the networking was clearly far more important than any outcomes on the day – and rightly so!), we headed home with our heads spinning with new ideas, new contacts in the assisstive equipment world and excited about things to come.
The intrepid social reporter David Wilcox nicely captured the event here (including EbD’s Dominic early on in the day below).
