ConnectUp (360G-SCVO-a11b000000NBl0gAAD)

ConnectUp will provide a 2 hour weekly drop in session at each of our three Housing Associations. These sessions will be lead by a Digital Inclusion worker and will involve both one-to-one and small group provision. The aim of these sessions is to support residents to gain basic digital skills at their own pace following an identification of need (through existing referral mechanisms), or on a drop in basis (self-referral or signposting). The Williamsburgh and Linstone ConnectUp sessions will be promoted as digital employability sessions, to provide participants with basic digital skills required to fulfil claimant commitments required of jobseekers such as Government Gateway accounts, Universal Job Match, CVs and cover letters, email accounts and website jobsearch, universal credit applications and meet the requirement of supporting working age people to increase financial capability, employment and other economic outcomes. In addition participants will gain the skills required to complete their online Universal Credit applications. The ConnectUp provision at Bridgewater will be promoted as a history of Erskine workshop where older people will be supported to gain the skills required to enable them to look research prose and pictures online, providing participants with basic digital skills such as websearch and use of social media. Sessions will develop organically in response to the needs and interests of participants and would meet the requirement for supporting older and disabled people to reduce social isolation and loneliness.
