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. 

Here's what some of the people we support had to say...

Becky from Derbyshire sent a hand-decorated thank you card saying: 

“Thank you for the lovely gift of my tablet, case and Wi-Fi box, they were a lovely surprise! Thanks again.”

Lisa in Derbyshire said:

“Our learners are over the moon!! Have to say we're very impressed with them, they are lovely!"

Hayley from Milton Keynes said:

“Wow Graham loves his new tablet... we can’t thank The Good Things Foundation enough. This has been amazing for Graham, his staff team are loving all the phone calls and questions about it!"

Our team in Derbyshire added:

"They are already being put to good use with Zoom meetings for different activities and learning how to take photographs and edit them. We want to say a big THANK YOU!"
