An event was held to say thank you to all supporters of the community garden. Sean, who is supported by mirus in Maesteg, and also volunteers in the garden, was there to represent mirus.
We collaborated with Cartrefi Cymru and Drive to host this event, and it was a great success.
Digital Communities Wales brought some Virtual Reality headsets, which went down an absolute storm with Neil and David from Bridgend. Video of their reactions to the rollercoaster VR coming soon (and trust us, they are hilarious!). Digital Communities Wales are a Welsh government project who support people in Wales to learn digital skills so that they can have more control in their lives.
Able Radio gave people the opportunity to try out their skills at being radio presenters, and introduce their favourite songs. They even held an impromptu karaoke session!
We talked to Abilia about their technology products that help people live richer, fuller lives by supporting people to create structure, communicate with people, and prepare for events. As well as a range of clever hardware that uses lights to help people understand timings for tasks, Abilia have a subscription based app that can help people schedule activities.
We premiered our new assistive technology compilation video at the event – it shows some of the technology that’s already in use by the people we support across mirus. You can watch it below:
