RNIB Rushton School and Children’s Home

I’ve started work on a project for RNIB Rushton School and Children’s Home.

Rushton provides education, residential care, and therapies  for young people with sight loss, multiple disabilities and complex health needs.

I’m capturing requirements for an information system for the school and home.

Some of the constraints (like complying with the Care Act 2000 and OFSTED inspections) are rather less negiotiable than is usual on my typical IT projects.

And for many of the staff, their daily lives do not revolve around a desk and computer.

It’s interesting stuff and I’m looking forward to getting to know more about how Rushton works (even if that does mean a lot more travel to Coventry!)
