AutonoMe is a virtual Learning Disability support provider designed to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities. AutonoMe enables people with learning disabilities to increase their independence through instructional videos accessed via a mobile app and provides Local Authorities with data on service users’ support needs; enabling them to commission more efficiently.
London Ventures is an innovative programme focused on driving sustainable and transformative change across London by introducing innovative private and third sector solutions to the public sector. London Ventures is governed by the Capital Ambition Board, delivered by London Councils, and powered by EY.
This collaborative approach to public service delivery encourages Local Authorities to work with partners of the programme to drive better commercial deals with suppliers, and inspires cross-sector partnerships which drive positive outcomes for Local Authorities and their residents.
AutonoMe was picked as a Venture Partner for the programme after successfully supporting Learning Disability services at a number of Local Authorities outside London including; Devon, Plymouth, Surrey, Cornwall, North Somerset and more.
William Britton, AutonoMe CEO said “We’re really excited to be a partner in this exciting programme. We’ve been working really hard to refine our service and business model over the last few years with nearby Local Authorities in the South West. With a number of successful case studies and clear evidence showcasing how AutonoMe can enrich the lives of people with Learning Disabilities we’re ready to scale up across London”.
Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council and Chair of Capital Ambition Board said“As Chair of the Capital Ambition Board, I am pleased to welcome AutonoMe to the London Ventures programme. We hope that our partnership with AutonoMe will provide London local government with access to innovation that will help to improve outcomes for London’s residents and businesses.”
