Digital inclusion

Creating connections logo

Creating Connections supports people with learning disabilities to use the internet safely to connect with friends and family.

We can support you to learn new digital skills, get started with using a tablet or computer, how to stay safe online and how to use video chat software.

Depending on your situation and location, our team of volunteers can provide sessions either in person or remotely from home.

Who we support

We can support people on a one-to-one basis or in a group setting, sharing our skills, experience, and knowledge about the internet.

You don’t need any knowledge or skills to start - we’ll work with you to support your individual needs to learn the skills you want for a more connected life.

We’ll usually help you with the computer equipment you already own. If you don’t have what you need to get connected, we can help you choose the right equipment or tell you about ways you might be able to get equipment for free or cheaper.

Access to employment

We also work together with our supported employment team, Ready, Willing and Able. We can also help you look for jobs online, help you amend your CV digitally and help prepare you for online interviews.

How we've made a difference

Our Creating Connections digital inclusion program has already changed the lives of people we work with, helping them reconnect with each other and reducing isolation.

Here are some of the wonderful success stories from people and organisations we’ve supported through Creating Connections.
