Blackwood Connect Tayside (360G-SCVO-a11b000000EtmMfAAJ)

Blackwood are committed to providing free at point of access Wi-Fi to all tenants as part of their care at home package. Over the next 3 years Blackwood will invest over £800,000 in the installation of Wi-Fi infrastructure. This significant investment is designed to support customers as more and more services move to digital by default. In the Tayside area they have already trialed their care and support system “CleverCogs” with a number of customers. This service will be rolled out to all customers supported by the Wi-Fi system. Blackwood recognise the need to support customers in the provision of this new technology and therefore will be seeking to increase the level of digital skills training and support offered on site. This project will see a digital skills trainer recruited for the Tayside area who will provide ongoing training and support to customers and staff.
