Amazing news! We have received a kind donation of brand new tablets from Wavelength for our project!
Wavelength have supported Kingston Eco-Op in their vital work against social isolation by providing 8 tablets for our clients to use at the project.
We have already used them in our Art and English classes, supporting clients to become familiar with the technology and understand the benefits of having an accessible route onto the internet. One of our older clients used the tablet to access the internet independently for the very first time and said: "It is really good! I would like to have one at home".
In addition to supporting digital techniques and art community access for our Art students, we will also be using the tablets to teach clients about Digital Health, supporting safety awareness online. There are also plans to introduce a tablet borrowing system for clients who are isolated at home.
"We want to ensure our clients have access to the same online opportunities as everyone else. The tablets are providing an easy way to get online for the whole group, as previously we had to rely on two PC's shared between everyone. The donation from Wavelength has been truly invaluable to us." - Tish Piwowarek, Operations Manager
