Connecting Scotland

That's another ELHA tenant helped to get online with Connecting Scotland!  One of our Housing Officers, James, helped to get our tenant a new Chromebook and internet access.

During the pandemic, digital communication has become the normal way to keep in contact with everyone - family, work, medical professionals, shopping, and so much more, but this can mean that anyone who isn't online yet has felt isolated and out of touch with the world.  Connecting Scotland has funding to get people online by removing some of the barriers to digital inclusion, and we can help.

If you have a friend, neighbour or family member who is an ELHA tenant and you think they may benefit from this, please pass along this information.  There's lots of great tips on the Connecting Scotland website about getting started.

If they're interested, just let us know - we can apply on their behalf (individuals are not currently able to self-refer).  The current phase of funding closes at the end of the month, but there is expected to a new phase in October.
