Will you join Professor Hawking in supporting our dream?
Making technology truly accessible to all is going to be hard work. But we’re determined to get there. To do so we need your help.
Professor Hawking asked us to look beyond disability and to dream of a truly accessible and equal world for all.
A donation today will be a first step on the road to making this dream a reality.
Please give generously.
- Donate £5 today to help set up the Everybody Tech group and start making our dream a reality
- Give £50 to help provide specialist training for a blind person to learn how to access technology to make their life easier
- £330 could pay for an i-pad, which can be used by specialist nursing staff to help blind toddlers with their sight and co-ordination

Why your donation matters
“As a blind person, I do not want to be left out in the cold when my friends are showing off their new phone and saying how good it is. I want to pull out my android or iPhone and say look I have one too and mine talks!” – Jonathan, an avid technology user
RLSB is establishing a group that will link big companies, disability experts and people living with disability. It will ensure the needs of disabled people, especially those living with sight loss, are considered upfront in the design process when mainstream companies create new products.
The group aims to increase social inclusion by facilitating the development of better products usable by everybody thus breaking down the stigma associated with some of today’s “access” technology, stigma felt especially acutely by blind young people looking to fit into modern life.
Our initiative has been given the special backing of Professor Stephen Hawking, whose own life and work has been aided by technology, but whose public persona is often dominated by the technology he must use to communicate.
