Certitude receives grant to fund life-changing technology
We were delighted today to receive a grant of £2,500 from MAXIMUS UK, a global company that currently provides more than 3,500 staff within the UK who deliver disability and health support and services to more than 1 million people each year.
The grant will go towards purchasing new pieces of assistive technology, including Google Home devices, alternative communication applications and iPads. This equipment will enable people to have more control, choice and independence in their day to day lives.
Seema Katrina Sharma, our Corporate Partnerships Manager, who accepted the grant on behalf of Certitude today has said about the contribution and the impact it will make:
“For many people who are not mobile and use sign language, sounds and hand gestures to communicate with friends, family and staff, assistive technology is a game-changer. It gives people back control of their lives and offers choices and opportunities which might not otherwise be possible. We are very grateful to MAXIMUS Foundation UK for a grant this size, as we have seen first-hand the impact assistive technology has on people we support.”
Di Briggs, Acting Chair for MAXIMUS Foundation UK, said:
“We are incredibly proud to be supporting Certitude and the work they do. At MAXIMUS UK, transformational health and wellness technology is a core part of our business, so we understand just how important assistive technology is to people with complex needs.”
The MAXIMUS Foundation UK has donated almost £200,000 in grants to charities and community groups over the last three years. We are incredibly grateful for their support.
