From the latest KDP bulletin –

Connecting Scotland is a Scottish Government programme which provides iPads, Chromebooks and support to develop digital skills for people who don’t have access to equipment or broadband, or who feel they don’t have the confidence or skills to go online.

Mearns and Coastal Healthy Living Network have been given 50 devices to pass on to older people living in Kincardine and Mearns.

Would you like to connect with family and friends using video calls? Would you like to be able to shop safely online, for groceries or hobbies? Would you like to listen to music and e-books, or access entertainment and learning online? Would you like to access health information, appointments and public services from your own home?

To learn more about this project, including how MCHLN can support you to get started online, please give them a call on 01561 378130 for more information.
