People Powered Technology (PPT)

Council of the Future ... Right Here, Right Now
Guest blog by Alison McKenzie-Folan, Deputy Chief Executive, Wigan Council 

www.techuk.org (27th Nov 2017):

4. Use digital to assist those most in need

The potential for digital and tech to improve the lives of residents who access our adult social care services is enormous. We are already using a range of innovative digital assistive technologies, as part of our People Powered Technology (PPT) project, to create new models of independent living and enable self-care. This technology monitors and supports people with disabilities to stay safe and more independent in their homes.
