The Assisting Living and Learning (ALL) Institute was officially launched by Professor Ray O’Neill during the Freedom Tech National Assembly on November 16th.  ALL has a central mission to enable people across their life course - especially those who have been marginalized - to achieve well-being in their preferred ways; through the development and application of appropriate technologies, person-centred systems and evidence-based policies, that empower users and those supporting them.  For further details or to get involved, see:
