Where would we be in the last 15 months if we couldn't get online? When the first lockdown began in March 2020, many of us turned to Zoom for pub quizzes and YouTube for guidance on starting that brand new hobby. It quickly became clear that many people we support had limited access to digital devices to help them to take part in the 'new normal'.
Throughout 2020, we made it our mission to tackle digital exclusion among people we support and we are delighted to share that in March 2021, we received confirmation that a funding application to The Good Things Foundation for 150 tablets for people we support was successful.
This donation has since made an incredible difference and as a result, 150 people we support are now using their own tablets to connect with family and friends and are enjoying taking part in MacIntyre’s online activities.
