A £10,000 Big Lottery Fund award to Norwood will help people with learning disabilities to acquire new domestic and work skills.
Norwood's supported employment service is piloting a scheme involving hand-held personal digital assistant devices (PDAs).
The aim is to assist clients to perform daily tasks such as tea-making, running a bath, using a photocopier or operating a DVD player.
The PDA will gradually remove steps from a pre-programmed sequence to the point where the person can perform the task from memory.
