Funding for VR Innovations in Health, Education and Social Care

Funding for VR Innovations in Health, Education and Social Care

At Antser, we recognise the transformative power of virtual reality (VR) technology in enhancing learning and understanding across health, education and social care.

We are committed to helping public and private organisations across the UK harness the potential of VR in order to improve the care, support and guidance they can provide to children, young people, vulnerable adults, and within their wider communities.

Recognising that budget concerns can be a significant hurdle for some, in this guide we will explore a range of funding options tailored to organisations with additional financial considerations.

With the right support, your transformative VR initiatives can become a reality, positively impacting your staff and the lives of those you serve.
