- Further Grant Funding from the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust
We’re delighted to announce that the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust have awarded us a second grant, this time from the Activate fund. This grant will ensure the sustainability of Braillecast and our Masterclasses for the next 18 months and enable the development of our other services, including our popular Braille for Beginners courses.
The WCMT Fellowship makes grants to inspiring individuals who possess the passion and commitment to make a real difference. This funding opportunity is underwritten by Ed Rogers, whose trip to India in 2017 forms the basis of the project.
We will have further information to share in the coming months.

The Braillists is a grass-roots community group connecting Braille readers with Braille technology developers and funders.
Braille is a simple code for representing written language. Almost anyone can learn the Braille alphabet and numbers in under an hour.
We believe Braille has the potential to transform the life of any blind person who has the opportunity to learn it.
- Promote the value of Braille as a proven literacy tool that enriches the lives of blind people.
- Support efforts to make affordable Braille and tactile reading technologies available to all blind people irrespective of education and employment status.
- Provide an open forum for the exchange of ideas about the development of future Braille technology.
Join our announcements only mailing list to receive occasional newsletters.
Join the conversation and meet other Braillists on our discussion forum.
