MAKING THE DIGITAL WORLD A REALITY FOR EVERYONE IN NORTH HERTS AND STEVENAGE
These past months have been horrible for everyone but, for people with no access to technology, it was even worse.
Have you heard of Digital Poverty?
Digital poverty happens when people don’t have the equipment, connectivity and/or skills to make the digital world a reality. A very lonely place.
The Staying Connected project seeks to eradicate digital poverty throughout Hertfordshire.
The late, great Captain Sir Tom Moore, whose efforts are helping to fund this project, said 'Tomorrow will be a good day'. It will be, but we need your help.
Do you have serviceable IT equipment, particularly laptops and tablets you no longer need?
Please donate them to us. The equipment will be securely wiped, reimaged and given to someone who needs it. Your support could make a life changing difference, enabling someone to do things such as seeing their loved ones on a video call, making medical appointments, renewing prescriptions, doing their shopping on-line.
Do you have what it takes to be
a Digital Champion?
These superheroes will help people who are new to technology, or those who need some support, to use their devices effectively. You don't need to be an IT whizz, all you need is confidence, enthusiasm and a bit of spare time. All of our volunteers must sign a Volunteer Agreement and undergo a DBS check.
