We seek funding to deliver online activities to Nottinghamshire people with learning disabilities. Building on lessons learned from Covid-19, we will expand our online offer to enable more people to achieve better physical & mental health through fun & engaging online learning and social activities.
The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted that people with learning disabilities at risk of poor health & social isolation face additional barriers to accessing help due to digital exclusion. We quickly adapted our services to help people get online & access learning & social activities that promote better health & social connections. We now want to expand our digital services to offer more activities & enable more vulnerable people to benefit from our bespoke online support & feel happier & healthier.
Our expert team will deliver online courses & socials to enable people with learning disabilities to learn about keeping healthy, important "stay safe" messages & connect safely with other people. Participants will gain vital skills & knowledge & feel less isolated because they will receive high quality support from tutors they know and trust. The project team will support participants & carers to get online including equipment loan, support to access the internet & produce digital resources.
