About Us

The Rix Centre is a charitable research & development organisation dedicated to the exploration of new media for the benefit of the learning disability community.  Multimedia can help people with learning disabilities to organise their thoughts, remember, learn and communicate more effectively. This can significantly improve their ability to live independent lives, contribute to the community and fulfill their personal aims and ambitions.

The Rix Centre works with the learning disability community to ensure that the benefits of these technologies are realised. Our work crosses the fields of Social Care, Health and Education. We combine research and development with teaching and learning. Working alongside the Rix Research Centre @ UEL we provide a variety of products & services developed with a network of partners, customers and sponsors.
