Many households without adequate access to the internet will be particularly isolated during (and following) the current lockdown. We are working closely with partner organisations to ensure that those in our community who would have been digitally excluded can now have access to online resources and services.
In addition to the distribution of several tablets already, SCOREscotland has recently been successful in accessing the Scottish Government Wellbeing Fund. An element of this will enable us to get more devices and improve connectivity for families most in need. This is critical, especially now, to enhance digital access to our services and other online resources. Ongoing support for using these new devices will be available.
Thanks to the Power Up Fund support from our Digital Inclusion partnership project, Wester Hailes Connects (WHC), is available to all local families and individuals during and after COVID-19.
