What is GOALS4LIFE?
GOALS4LIFE stands for Global Online Assisted Learning & Support. Our aim is to create an innovative virtual Information and Communications Technologies teaching and learning environment.
Disabled people have the right to choose how they learn and how technology can enrich their lives. We’re working together with individuals, local authorities, Government, educational establishments and other online learning enterprises to advance education, research and inclusive learning by distance communication activities locally, regionally, nationally and internationally via different forms of video online for children and adults with a variety of disabilities associated with speech, language and communication. We’re advancing the understanding of the public into the social, educational and technological needs of people, young and old, who have disabilites in the UK and worldwide.

METEC Coronavirus Appeal
We are determined to fight on and publicise the excellent work we are achieving with deaf and disabled children, young people and adults, both nationally and internationally.
Dear Friends & Colleagues,
As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, we realise that our educational technology enterprises are going to suffer financially. We are determined to fight on and publicise the excellent work we are achieving with deaf and disabled children, young people and adults, both nationally and internationally.
The METEC consortium aims to invest in a future where emerging digital online technologies, healthy living, improved accessibility, new business opportunities, more sport & creative arts / music can break down communication barriersand dramatically improve the quality of life of this and future generations of deaf and disabled people.
I would very much like to encourage you to think of how you, and your network of friends and colleagues, might support METEC at this Coronavirus landmark in our development.
It would be wonderful if we could, through all our respective connections, raise a substantial amount of funds towards our “INVESTING IN THE FUTURE OF METEC”.
