Our History

Year: 1975

1975

A small group of kind people living in Poole, Dorset find out about a boy who needs help writing and wish to help. The boy has a condition called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy which is preventing him using a pen. They raise enough money to buy him an electric typewriter. They then form a charity to help other disabled people with technology and call the charity The Aidis Trust.

1980

A kind benefactor leaves money for the charity to open up an assessment centre in Poole.

1990

HRH The Duke of Kent, himself a keen techie, becomes our patron.

2001

A small satellite office opens in Manchester to help support Northerners.

2003

The charity sells up in Poole and moves to the big smoke, London.

2009

The Norther office increases in size and becomes the main service centre, with London down-sizing.

2014

We start our Everyone Can Game service, officially acknowledging that digital technology and gaming have always gone hand-in-hand and we have always supported people to have fun using technology.

2018

The charity rebrands and changes its name from the Aidis Trust to Everyone Can, making our name both easier to spell and understand.

We also open up the Everyone Can Technology and Gaming Centre, enabling people to see a larger range of technology and also have an even better gaming experience.
