The Tech4Good Awards are organised by AbilityNet’s Head of Marketing and Communications, Mark Walker. He said:

“We hear so many scare stories about technology but we know that the right tech can transform people’s lives in so many positive ways. Our Awards shine a light on some of the amazing people using tech to make the world a better place.

“For example last year’s winners included nine-year-old inventor Arnav Sharmar. Arnav studied the causes, diagnosis and effect of asthma and programmed a Raspberry Pi to help parents of children suffering from asthma and those not sure about the diagnosis of asthma.”

Past winners include a volunteer who uses digital custard to help children with special needs, a new system to help blind people navigate the tube network, a charity that helps disabled children play computer games and a startup that uses 3D-printing to produce affordable prosthetic limbs.
