The Disabled Living Foundation (DLF) has recently written with an update on progress on the project to create, pilot and evaluate a computer-based system to enable older and disabled people to access equipment (the self-assessment and rapid access (SARA) project). Since the announcement in November 2002 officials have arranged with the DLF to develop the required software. There is frequent contact between them and work is progressing well. It is expected that public trials of the system will start in October 2003 and that these will be evaluated in spring 2004.
