Support people with a learning disability to get online and connect with friends

by Building Bridges

Building Bridges are looking for volunteers to join our Creating Connections team supporting people with a learning disability in Sandwell to get digitally connected.
The Creating Connections project supports people with learning disabilities to use technology to get connected with friends and family, and other community activities.
With your support people with a learning disability will be able to learn new digital skills, get started with using a tablet, smart phone or computer, learn how to stay safe online and how to use video chat software.
The support can be given in small groups in community venues, face to face sessions in people’s homes, or remote support.
