Connecting Scotland is a Scottish Government initiative set up in repsonse to coronavirus. Its aim is to help get every citizen in Scotland online.
We are delighted to have been successful in the third phase of the Connecting Scotland iPad fund, previously we were successful in the second phase where we distributed ipads to our customers living within our North Lanarkshire homes.
We are now looking for our customers who live within South Lanarkshire areas and can identify with one or more of the following points to come forward;
- You are digitally excluded and do not have access to an appropriate device or internet conection at home
- You are from a low income household and cannot afford to buy a device or pay for internet access from your income
- You are actively taking steps to improve your employment prospects such as confidence buidling, improving health and wellbeing, ESOL programmes
If you think you would benefit from a device but are worried about lack of skills and confidence using one, do not worry, Frances who is our Community Connector is here to help you with all your digital needs!
