New project to get more people with LD to exercise regularly – Learning Disability Today


A start-up company has secured £1.4 million of funding for a new service that aims to get more people with learning disabilities regularly exercising.
Tendertec has partnered with the learning disability charity Hft to develop a new support service called FitBees. FitBees will enable people to wear sensors and other wearable technologies at home, providing motivational encouragement and community connections to support activity.
The funding for the project was provided by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) as part of the Healthy Ageing Challenge.
