To help the Guide Dogs Charity has launched a new 'Tech for all' campaign, to give him and thousands others access to life-changing technology.

Clive Wood from the charity said the devices will benefit children and young people who are blind or partially sighted with their learning and development.

The charity will intially being providing up to 3,500 devices but their hope is to increase the number up to 10,000 by the end of 2022. They're urging anyone who wants to be involved to contact them.
