North Somerset Training is pleased to announce that we have been awarded funding to provide 100 devices (with 4G for internet access) to give for FREE to adults/families that do not have a device and/or Internet access, but would benefit from keeping up with what’s going on in the outside world and be able to video call people and keep in contact with family and friends.
The only criterion is that the recipient will meet with one of our digital champions (face to face or over the phone) so they can get training and be enabled them to use their new device. If the recipient wishes he/she can also attend free courses with one of our partners organizations.
The tablets will be preloaded with apps including ones from NHS and with links to apps that will benefit the user (WhatsApp, Facebook, etc). Training to use the devices will be available to small groups or on a 1 to 1 basis at North Somerset Training Community Hub or at a venue to suit recipients’ needs.
The devices and 4G are completely FREE and will be theirs to keep. In September, we will contact the recipients to receive feedback and see if there is any further help needed.
This is the form to be completed: https://forms.gle/Hbn48wf2a48hqNGs8
It would be amazing if you could share this information with other organizations who might have people who can benefit from this project.
