Individuals are currently unable to directly apply to be provided with kit and connectivity. We are working with local Councils and voluntary sector organisations to identify and reach people who are the target groups to provide support.
We will also provide training to staff and volunteers working for organisations to be able to support individuals to use the internet safely, confidently and effectively.
For people who can’t get online and are at increased risk from coronavirus, a national helpline (0800 111 4000) is available to help people access services they need in their local community.
If you are supporting people to get online, there is some information available below to help help them to do this safely.
