iOpener Project

Project dates: During 2014

We aim to encourage communication between 16-25 year olds with learning/communication disabilities to explore their town, creating trails on mobile phones and tablets alongside same-age volunteers. The project has been extended, with help from the Cultural Partnership, Reading, to encourage others to take part – communication amongst us all.
