SeeAbility is one of the oldest disability charities in the UK and has pioneered specialist support for over 200 years. Their supported living service in Maidstone is known to Donations With A Difference, having previously been awarded grants to the six ladies who live there.
SeeAbility approached us with a request for £382 to purchase specialist sensory equipment they needed for their residents in Maidstone. The introduction of the Roberts Opus Digital Radio would mean they would enjoy quality time using a device that has been created for people with visual impairment and learning difficulties.
The specialist equipment donated by Donations With A Difference arrived early in 2020 and since then has brought immense joy at the home. From grooving to Cats original sound track and having the power of skipping songs, the ladies have been enjoying the accessible radio. The home is musical and creative and the ladies have been able to enjoy the sounds blasted through the device.
