The scale of the crisis created by Covid 19 has laid bare needs across society. For many of us the internet performs a basic function, allowing us to access information and communicate with each other.
Access to technology and digital skills are not just important in themselves, they are increasingly important for how we navigate the modern world. The effect of home-schooling has been overwhelming on children and young people during the lockdown, and we know that social connectivity can help them to maintain friendships and belonging throughout this time of isolation. Help us to support children and families across the region by addressing inequalities and a digital divide, making sure that more people can connect during this difficult time.
This is especially so with schools suspended, and people isolating.
