Are you passionate about digital inclusion for all? Do you love working as part of the community, reaching those who are most excluded? Come and join our team! The Digital Inclusion Outreach Officer will be focused on working with people who are from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups who are living with mental ill-health, long term health conditions/disability. You will be joining the Tech to Community Connect project team - a collaborative project led by Surrey Coalition of Disabled People.
Digital exclusion is a health inequality in its own right and is also a major contributor to loneliness and social isolation. Covid-19 has made those who are digitally excluded even more isolated and data is already showing widening health inequality and increased levels of loneliness as a result of the pandemic.
We are working as part of a cross-system project team, to design and deliver an outreach programme for digital exclusion, particularly focused on people from BAME groups with mental ill-health. This programme will be focused on the Spelthorne, Runnymede, and Woking area as this is an area that has been identified as having particularly high levels of need.
Tech to Community Connect is a collaborative project led by Surrey Coalition of Disabled People and Action for Carers Surrey. The service includes the provision of a device, a ‘match’ with a volunteer tech angel and digital literacy guides, the provision of a programme of virtual social and activity groups and, finally, the opportunity for people to virtually volunteer.
