Lifelites has been named in this year’s Digital Leaders 100 list, a prestigious list of organisations and individuals championing digital transformation in the UK, but we need your vote!
We have been specifically shortlisted for the Digital Charity of the Year award along with nine other charities, but only the one with the most votes at the end of the voting period will win the title.
We have been nominated due to our work piloting Virtual Reality experiences for children in hospices. We believe that this technology has huge potential for children with life-limiting conditions. It gives them the opportunity to escape the confines of their condition and immerse themselves in a world of make believe, experiencing things that might never have otherwise been possible, such as going to space or seeing the northern lights.
The vote is open until May 11th, and the winner will be announced at an awards dinner on June 21st.
In order to win the category of Digital Charity of the Year, we need as many votes as possible. Please go to the DL100 website to vote, and if you’d like to share it with your social media followers, visit our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Lifelites aims to harness the power of technology by donating a wide variety of assistive and inclusive equipment to enhance the lives of terminally ill 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.
