At Lifelites, we are committed to continually upgrading our website to make it more accessible and usable for everyone. We have recently invested in research and consultancy with specialist companies to understand how best to do this.
The resulting changes we have made mean that more users with special needs should have a much better experience when using our website.
As we strive towards making our website simple to use for all, we would welcome any feedback on further improvements. Please click on 'get in touch' to send us an email.
General hints and tips
Adjusting the size of text in Internet Explorer
To make reading on screen more comfortable, you can change the size of the text in your browser. In Internet Explorer, choose View > Text Size and then Larger or Largest to make the text bigger. Choose View > Text Size > Medium to reset it to the default size. Changing this setting may also affect any other web sites that you view.
If you use the Accessibility options in Internet Explorer to Ignore Font Sizes Specified on Web Pages (Tools > Internet Options > Accessibility), the navigation menu text may overflow the space available when the font size is set larger than default. If you think you may be missing items from the menu and you have used this option, try making the text size smaller using the View menu, or turn off the option.

John Donoghue is a dedicated Lifelites Benefactor. He shared with us his very moving personal story about his daughter's health and the reason he decided to become a benefactor, and make a regular monthly gift to Lifelites.
Our Patrons support our vision, mission and values and give all of their time for free. Their contribution and support is highly valued.
Lifelites aims to harness the power of technology by donating a wide variety of assistive and inclusive equipment to enhance the lives of life-limited and disabled children using hospice services.
For these children with complex cognitive and physical impairments, this technology is quite simply magical. It gives them opportunities they wouldn’t otherwise have to join in with the world around them, irrespective of their disabilities.
Providing these opportunities is only possible because of the donations that Lifelites receives.
We have two new additions to our magical technology package! Click below to learn more about the Tilt Table and the PODs Sensory Tent!
