Have a look at this interim report from Golden Gates Housing Trust into their pilot project Friends Reconnected. The project is looking to address digital exclusion amongst elderly people in Bewsey and Dallam. The project is providing free internet connection for 12 months to 20 homes, the intention being that the tenants will become confident and independent internet users.
This is really interesting Caroline. What do you think are the prospects of the project being extended over the wider area as recommended?
At this stage I am not sure. It is an interim report so I am sure a final decision will be made at the end of the 12 months. Kim is a member on the forum so you might want to post a comment directly to her.
