Bethphage Wins Digital Lifeline Funding

Bethphage are delighted to be awarded 10 digital devices for some of the people we support!

Bethphage recently applied for funding from the Good Things Foundation for the Digital Lifeline Project which is an emergency response to get devices, data and digital skills to people with learning disabilities who are digitally excluded.

This project was supported by Learning Disability England and Voluntary Organisations Disability Group ( VODG) We know the funding was over subscribed and many organisations will have missed out on this opportunity so we feel very lucky to have been successful in being awarded these tablets.

The tablets come with 24gb of data, a case and a pen and we will be distributing them to people we support who have been identified as being most in need.

Area Manager for Bethphage Jon -Paul Turford said,

“The great thing about the Digital Lifeline Project is that it is not just about giving out free tablets, it is a project that equips organisations like Bethphage with the tools to support individuals to use the tablets safely and effectively, through training, goal setting and outcomes monitoring.”

Both Bethphage and the people who will receive the devices will access training through Ability Net.

This project is a great example of different organisations working together to improve digital access for people with learning disabilities and Bethphage feel privileged to be part of it.
