The Coronavirus crisis has highlighted bigger inequalities for people with learning disabilities who aren’t online.
While many of us are holding Zoom meetings, Facetiming our families, and connecting with our communities online many people with learning disabilities are more cut off from society than ever before.
We’re aiming to change that!
We’ve launched this emergency appeal because we’re concerned that 25% of the people that we work with are also without a connection to the internet.
Without internet, a time like this is a very lonely place to be. Especially if you already know what it feels like to be socially isolated because you rely on a support worker to access the outside world.
That’s why we’re asking for your help to connect our participants who aren’t already online (and want to be) via a smartphone.
Your support will bring a vital social lifeline to people who really need it right now. Your donation will go directly to getting people connected to the internet who are really isolated at the moment and have little contact with the outside world.
