Description

Reconnect offers support to adults and families to help them improve wellbeing by increasing digital and social inclusion. We do this by providing in-person support in Edinburgh and the Lothians and through the Connecting Scotland digital support helpline, offering digital support across Scotland.

We used a three-faceted approach to digital inclusion, providing support through digital groups in local communities, one-to-one sessions, and through the Connecting Scotland digital support helpline. Through these interventions, we can help with:

  • Using devices like smartphones, tablets, laptops or desktop computers
  • Connecting to the internet
  • Navigating the web and social media
  • Completing everyday tasks online
  • Connecting with the community, family and friends
  • Managing finances, paying bills and saving money online
  • Reducing costs (energy providers, data plans, shopping, etc.)
  • Finding opportunities for education and employment
  • Feeling less isolated and having someone to talk to
