Portland College has collaborated with ADS Independent Living Solutions (ADS) to launch independent living homes that come pre-fitted with assistive technology for people with learning and physical disabilities. The Smile Homes have been installed on the college campus and deliver intelligent and completely personalised housing for people with complex needs. Incorporating assistive technology from the start, the homes support the health and wellbeing of the person living in them, with the flexibility to support people with different needs in being as independent as they can. The first unit installed at Portland College, co-funded by Innovate UK, will be used as a living lab and to demonstrate its flexible technology infrastructure, which can support a range of systems for integrated building, environment, and personal management.

Join us on this webinar to find out how Portland learners have the opportunity to test this innovative new way of independent living and provide feedback on their experience.
