He is a trustee and chairs the management committee of another charity, Full Circle, which is well regarded for its ground breaking intergenerational work.

    Really enjoyed this session of the podcast.
    I think the implementation of iPad to enhance development in children life is really important.
    As Peter mentions ” the hardware is not a problem” with apps learning become fun and enhance kids learning experiences.
