With over 3,200 members in over 120 countries, bespoken is a non-profit online community created by Blackwood that is focused on design and innovation that helps people who have disabilities live life to the full.

A platform for mutual support and advice among its members, bespoken is an ideal place for people who are newly disabled to find information and advice from people who have already lived it.

Bespoken is managed by Ryan MacDonald, Design and Engagement Manager (pictured above), with the help of its fantastic team of volunteers. Blackwood also does a lot of research to bring to bespoken all the latest innovations and concepts that are being developed for independent living. By bridging the gap bespoken can put brilliant designers and engineers in contact with its members so they can help guide design of new accessibility and independent living devices.
