By 2050 over two billion people will need Assistive Technology, but only 10% will have access to it.

AT2030 tests ‘what works’ to improve access to life-changing Assistive Technology (AT) for all; investing £20m over 5 years to support solutions to scale. Led by Global Disability Innovation Hub and funded by UK aid, AT2030 will reach 9 million directly and 6 million more indirectly, driving a lifetime of potential. AT2030 is operational in 15 countries across Africa and Asia.

Programme Clusters

The programme is divided into four Programme Clusters to test ‘what works’ for AT
