Virtual Reality to Revolutionise Training for Disability Support

Published

A disability service provider hopes to revolutionise support training in the disability sector, unveiling a prototype for a virtual reality training tool.  

The House with No Steps Group (HNSG) developed the virtual reality (VR) learning tool to help support staff experience and learn about possible high risk situations in a “safe and realistic way”.

CEO of the group, Andrew Richardson, said having well-trained staff was “at the heart” of their commitment to their customers, and believed VR was the road to go down.

It was developed in partnership with UNSW and the Centre for Social Impact, but support workers were closely involved in the design process.
