Touchstone’s new and exciting project is called Healthy Connections.  We will be loaning tablets, loaded with 40GB of data, to Service Users of VCSE organisations over West Yorkshire.

The tablet lending scheme is the critical component of the Healthy Connections project to communicate vital Covid-19 guidance and vaccination messaging and bridge the digital skills and access gap by providing tablets for a period of up to 3 months, for those who would not otherwise have access to equipment or the internet.

This is thanks to the generosity of Near Neighbour’s funding, which granted Touchstone £25,000 to provide new tablets to combat digital exclusion across the West Yorkshire region.

Near Neighbours collaborates with a variety of local and national partners who offer their knowledge as well as training, resources, and events to the initiative. Their work focuses on building the networks and capabilities of local communities and organisations via long-term initiatives that will have a lasting impact.

If you think your organisation and Service Users would benefit from our project, please get in touch ASAP via;
