Our project workers are no longer able to provide face-to-face services to vulnerable children and young people. We are trying to move our offering online where possible, but a lack of digital capability is often a barrier to this for young people and families.
Without access to the phones or tablets, children and young people won’t be able to speak to or see their project workers, who are often a great source of comfort and routine – and are needed during this crisis more than ever.
We will provide devices that will enable children to communicate with and see their support worker.
We will arrange online ‘play along’ sessions through our Children’s Centres so that they can see and interact with using the devices.
We will support families with an improved access to broadband data.
Help us keep on giving the support vulnerable children need through the Coronavirus crisis. Your gift today can help us deliver the services they need through digital means.
