The last three months have seen 5 more Applewatches provided to people living with Usher Syndrome.
Reports are being received of the huge difference this technology is making to deafblind people who have felt isolated as a result of their condition.
We are also hearing of new found confidence to venture out and do new things that they would never havce dreamt of previously.
Usher Syndrome (deafblindness) is a very isolating condition. Along with deafblindness comes communication and mobility challenges. Meaning many struggle with everyday life many lack the confidence to do anythung independently. Usher Syndrome is a hidden disability meaning very misunderstood making it even harder to live with.

The feedback blogs demonstrates what this accessible assistive and enabling technology does for people with Usher Syndrome and we intend to continue fundraising to make a difference to others, all support hugely appreciated
