In addition to holding a Board Meeting, we will be having a series of roundtables with leading European disability organisations, including WI Members. Following the roundtables we will be holding a networking event over drinks and nibbles.
Workability International would like to extend an invitation to all Members to join us in London for these events. They will occur on Tuesday 22 March.
Congratulations to the winners of the 2015 Workability International Photo Competition!
1st place: SINAM, India
Judges comments: The winning smile of the young man pictured told a story all on its own. The simplicity of the shot, and the goat made this photo a clear favourite.
2nd place: Southland disAbility Enterprises, New Zealand
Judges comments: This image shows two people working together to accomplish a task, they look like they love their roles and working together and the colours in the image work well together.
3rd place: NRCD, Nepal
Judges comments: This photo captures people in a partnership, working together and helping each other and the community. The black and white image also adds to the depth of the photo.
Two brothers in Melbourne are using technology to “re-enable” themselves – and helping others do the same.
Living by their mantra, it’s not people that are broken, it’s technology that’s broken, identical twins Chris and Nick Fryer have used 3D printing tools to create robots, drones, wheelchair support frames and computer aids.
Nick and Chris were both diagnosed with Duchenne strain of muscular dystrophy when they were eight.
Now 37, they are using home-made technological aids to enrich their lives.
