Today 2.5 billion people need at least one form of assistive technology and most people will require assistive technology at some point in their lifetime, whether because of a disability, injuries or simply old age. By 2050 this figure is likely to rise to 3.5 billion.

We need as many organisations as possible to join us and help shine a spotlight on the huge lack of access to assistive products, including wheelchairs, glasses, hearing aids, prosthetic limbs and related technology and services. Assistive technology has been under-resourced for too long – now is the time for change.

If you’re from a low-income country – help us raise awareness of the assistive technology that people in your country should have access to.

In this toolkit you will find everything you need to show your support for the campaign, including:

  • Key messages
  • Key stats and facts
  • Suggested social media posts
  • Social media assets – including editable versions that you can tailor with your own message
  • Photography/ imagery

Please ensure to download the toolkit in order to access the links.

As well as using the assets in the toolkit to support us on social media, why not also:

  • Promote the Unlock the Everyday campaign at events, meetings and policy forums you’re participating in
  • Feature the campaign in your next newsletter
  • Sign up to become an Unlock the Everyday campaign ambassador – do your employees or members use some form of assistive technology and have positive stories to tell?
  • Ask your influencers and corporate partners to support the campaign
  • Keep checking our website for events and activities in 2024 that you might want to get involved in!

 

Please also encourage as many people within your networks to support the campaign using their own social media channels and to promote the campaign to their own contacts.
