Is technology the answer?

02 January 2013

Carers wanted to explore role of technology in caring

From smart phones to sensors, from alarm systems to remote health checks, technology is changing the way we care. 

Carers UK, the University of Westminster and the London School of Economics are embarking on new research into the use of technology by carers and the people they support. The project is funded by the Technology Strategy Board's Assisted Living Innovation Platform with the aim of exploring the role technology can play in caring.

We’re inviting carers to participate in focus groups between February – April 2013. Each session will be an interactive discussion about how technology can assist carers and the people they support, and will introduce the participants to new and emerging technologies.

If you would like to participate in this exciting new research project please submit your details online at
