Situation

Digital literacy is the lowest amongst the disabled and older people. However with an increase in online service availability and a pledge by the government to digitalise the Welfare System it is imperative that there is concentrated effort to train disabled people to use these platforms or we risk isolating them further from the society.

Solution

We will offer support through the online benefit application processes, as well as, set up innovative projects to support older disabled and older people to familiarise with the various digital platforms and explore how they can be relevant and assistive in their everyday life. Organise exciting, creative projects for young disabled people to take part and get them accustomed to using digital media.
