Proud to be patron of The Sequal Trust in it’s 50th year

As many of you will know, giving people the chance to have a voice is a cause that is very close to my heart. After all, I wouldn't be where I am today without mine. That's why I'm always proud to support charities who help enable people to do just that. One of these charities is The Sequal Trust, which I am delighted to be patron of.

September 2019 is The Sequal Trust's 50th Anniversary, and ever since the communication disability charity was conceived in 1969, they have been supplying communication aids to those who are non-verbal or have incoherent speech. The motto of The Sequal Trust is to ‘set lively minds free’. And by funding devices such as  iPads, Gridpads, Lightwriters and Eye gaze technology, they have given thousands of people a voice.

As a patron of The Sequal Trust, it’'s fantastic to know just how many lives they have touched over the last 50 years and it’'s with the help of their supporters and generous donations that they have been able to continue with their life-changing work.

Before it became The Sequal Trust, the charity was known as the PUA –(or Possum Users Association) with Possum being the first communication aid created. Back then, this charity aimed to supply people with limited speech with the Possum device, but today The Sequal Trust has a much broader scope.

SEQUAL stands for Special Equipment and Aids for Living and besides supplying funding for communication devices, they are also able to provide items such as wheelchair mounts and access switches, helping those with severe disabilities live more independent lives.

The Sequal Trust relies on donations and they are always willing to accept funds (no matter how small the contribution) and I would urge you to give what you can to help someone else communicate more effectively.

You can find out more about registering for their help, donating, and the devices they fund on The Sequal Trust website.
