Digital Buddy Scheme

The internet can seem a complicated and confusing virtual world, but our Digital Buddy Scheme is supporting family Carers with a free 1-2-1 tailored support programme to keep them connected by using technology.

We often hear how Carers feel isolated and how the pandemic heightened this feeling for the majority. If you don’t have a means to access the internet or if you want to learn how to get the best out of being online, CASS is inviting you to join our scheme. There are a limited number of electronic tablet devices available to loan for 6 months, which all come with free access to the internet.

Our Digital Buddy will help with an initial face to face set up of the tablet, followed by regular online and telephone support. Whether you want to keep in touch with friends and family, access local services which help save you time and from leaving your loved ones or increase your knowledge and confidence about caring – we can help you feel confident and safe online.

If you’re interested in being a part of our scheme, call us on 01785 606675.
