Caterham Salvation Army donated a tablet to us!

A huge THANK YOU to Caterham Salvation Army who have very kindly donated a tablet to the Tech to Community Connect service. 

Pete Dommett, Technology Lead, went to pick up the tablet today. 

Pete says:

we are doing all we can to get people who are digitally excluded online.  People who are disabled, living with a long term health condition and/or Carers are much more likely to be digitally excluded than others”

The Tech to Community Connect service provides support to people who are not able to get online or to use technology.  The service lends devices to those who need them, matches people up with a Tech Angel volunteer and provides an online social activity programme for everyone.

Ailsa Flinders from Salvation Army Caterham Caterham | The Salvation Army  said

“we are keen to support local efforts to get people online and this scheme has made a real impact in Surrey for those who have been isolated in lockdown”. 

Caterham Salvation Army is an active multi-generational Christian church, on Caterham Hill.  The Caterham Salvation Army team will be promoting the scheme across the district to all those who could benefit.

If you know someone who could benefit from this service, or for more information, please go to: https://surreycoalition.org.uk/technology-projects/ or email getconnected@surreycoalition.org.uk.
