Digital Inclusion Support
The Connecting Carers element of this project will support carers to tackle their tech phobias and get online.
This will be done through the provision of individualised IT support delivered by our trained volunteers either by telephone, in the community or in the carer's home (following safe social distancing and wearing PPE of course).
For carers who want to get online but struggle to afford to do so, we can help support carers to access the equipment and facilities they need to get online.
Are you a carer, or do you know a carer who wants to get online but doesn't know where to start? You can complete a referral form on our website or give us a ring on 020 8533 0951.
