Organisations that support struggling families, isolated older people, jobseekers and other at-risk groups are being urged to get in touch with Getting Oxfordshire Online, a local partnership that provides laptops and other support to improve digital inclusion.
With the increased impact of the Omicron variant, people’s behaviours and support systems are yet again being disrupted. Work-from-home guidance, the widespread need to self-isolate, and the impact of continual uncertainty on mental health are all key concerns.
With up to 40,000 people in Oxfordshire not online, we all know there are still too many people in need of access to the internet at this difficult time.
Launched in September 2021 in response to the pandemic. Partners in three locations across the county accept devices donated by businesses and the public, refurbish them and pass them to people who need them. Partners can also help people to access the data, training and support they need to get online.
The partnership accepts referrals from charities and community groups in Oxfordshire that support disadvantaged individuals or families. If your organisation works with people that need devices or other support with getting online, do get in touch to refer them to the Getting Oxfordshire Online service - we are here to help.
