Going online can be a daunting thing, but it is getting harder to avoid as everything is turning digital. We have a few ways in which we can help you become independent and confident in the digital world.

How we can support you:

Tablet Loan Scheme

You can request a digital Acatel tablet for you to use. It is free and the loan period is minimum 3 months. You do not need to have WIFI to receive the tablet, we have tablets which connect to 3G. Our Digital Inclusions Officer will support you with this and give you a tutorial on how to use the device. If you need more help with the tablet, that's not a problem, you can have regular sessions with them.

Our Digital Inclusions Officer

These sessions could be able having access to emails, online banking, or something simpler like how to send a text or to start listening to music.
