Keeping connected is important

The coronavirus pandemic has shown us how important keeping connected is - but not everyone has equal access to devices, or the connectivity needed to get online.  

Many of us could use some extra support to get the most out of tech while staying digitally safe, and that’s why Vodafone and Barnardo’s are working together to support families and young people. 

Together, we are: 

  • Tackling the digital divide through our Great British Tech Appeal by working with the UK public and businesses to provide pre-loved donated devices, along with connectivity, to people who might otherwise not be connected  

  • Providing digital upskilling training to young people by supporting them on their journey into independence and employment.    

  • Helping everyone get the most out of technology with expert support and resources.
