Raising Horizons is a software development company specialising in creating interactive elearning training materials.

Our courses primarily assists people who have a learning disability, such as cerebral palsy, autism and other related learning disabilities, although we have developed other  interactive courses to support vulnerable groups.

We have had substantial support from the European Union, UK Government, National Autistic Society ("NAS"), World Autistic Society ("WAS") and Autism Europe for our courses for people with a learning disability.

We work closely with The Foundation for European Initiatives who have helped us develop a number of the courses we offer.

A number of our courses have been reviewed by the British Educational Communications and Technology Agency (“BECTA”) who approved our products to be used under the Citizenship and Personal, Social and Health Education section of the National Curriculum.

Our suite of developers continue to produce leading edge elearning courses.
