Dave Steele aka The Blind Poet on meeting RoomMate for the first time....
We recently contacted Former Home Secretary, Lord Blunkett, to ask him if he had heard of the RoomMate® in the Palace of Westminster.... Little did we know that he would take it upon himself to go and have a look!
The iconic Chichester Festival Theatre in West Sussex has joined a growing list of public buildings fitting the revolutionary RoomMate® in two of its accessible toilet facilities. The RoomMate® provides an audio description of ‘away from home’ toilets for Visually Impaired visitors who would normally rely on a carer, giving them much greater independence and dignity.
Dr Amit Patel gives his opinion. Thanks Amit.
The Queen Alexandra College organises exhibitions that showcase technology and currently run both the Sight Village & Autism Central. We travelled up to Sandy Park, home of the Exeter Chiefs to spread the news about RoomMate, meet some new and some familiar faces and see what else is going on in the tech world.
Spring has sprung and with it comes our latest offering of our news; where and who have been fitting RoomMates including a number of new 'Firsts' which are very exciting. We hope you enjoy and remember, to see how RoomMates are spreading across the UK have a look at our map 'Find A RoomMate'.
I don't know about you but we seem to be constantly getting contacted by social media gurus trying to sell us their services. Most would have us believe that in this age of digital media, where much of our news is found via the internet, that distributing our company’s news via social media alone is all we need to do to reach our audience.

Starting up a business can be a nerve wracking process, not least when you realise that many 'great ideas' never leave the ideas stage due to, what I believe is the biggest single obstacle to starting a business, lack of funds. Thanks to a loan from The South West Investment Group we were able to get RoomMate to market.
