Connecting Scotland

We are delighted to have been successful in our application to Phase 2 of Connecting Scotland and to receive 120 Ipads and Mobile WiFi access for our customers who are digitally excluded.  This is a Scottish Government programme set up in response to coronavirus. It provides iPads, Chromebooks and support to develop digital skills for people who are digitally excluded and on low incomes.

If you are:

- Digitally Excluded

- Do not have access to an appropriate device to access the internet

- Not connected to the internet at home

- Have a low income and can’t afford to buy a device or pay for internet access and

- Are a household with children or

- Care leaver up to age of 26

Then please get in touch with us to see if you are eligible for a FREE Ipad and 12 months Mobile WiFi access.

You can contact us by telephone on 01698 268855 or email 

If you are eligible for a device you will be given access to a Digital Champion to help you set up your Ipad, learn the basics of how to use it and to show you how to get better connected.  This includes helping you engage with us as well as accessing a range of services online within your community and wider.

If you receive a device and connectivity you will be required to complete a Survey and User Agreement with ourselves on behalf of Connecting Scotland.
