We’re really excited to announce that Lifelites has been named among the 2015 Nominet Trust 100 (2015 NT100) – the UK’s leading tech for good funder Nominet Trust’s annual celebration of the 100 most inspiring uses of technology for good ventures from around the world.
How Lifelites was selected: The 2015 NT100 was compiled from a combination of over 500 public nominations and in-house research. This shortlist was presented to a panel of judging partners of ten tech and charity organisations including representatives from Big Lottery Fund, Comic Relief, Creative England, Facebook, Latimer Group, Nominet, O2 Telefonica, Oxfam, Salesforce and Society Guardian, who selected the final 2015 NT100 in recognition of our work providing specialist technology for life limited and disabled babies, children and young adults in hospices across the British Isles
Simone Enefer-Doy, Chief Executive of Lifelites, said: “As you can imagine, we are very excited that the work of Lifelites has been recognised by the Nominet 100 judges. This prestigious award is just what we need to help spread the word about our work. Whilst we know that there’s a lot you can do with technology which can make such a difference to the lives of life limited and disabled children in hospices, we also know that our work is often hidden from public view. We are very grateful for the opportunity the Nominet 100 will give us to promote what we do to harness the power of technology and how that can be absolutely life changing for the youngsters we help.”
Vicki Hearn, Director of Nominet Trust, said: “Remarkable people all over the world are embracing technology to combat some of the most pressing social challenges we face today. Increasing accessibility to technology is helping foster communities of social tech entrepreneurs worldwide, who are transforming healthcare, access to education, sustainability and civic empowerment. The NT100 seeks to highlight these pioneers, so that others may be encouraged to follow in their footsteps.”
