In Touch free service from Disability Partnership Calderdale

Posted on

Coronavirus has left many people isolated, lonely and out of touch with family and friends but a new free service from Disability Partnership Calderdale puts people back in contact with their families and friends, using video calling.

The project called In Touch is aimed at disabled and elderly people and their families and friends across Calderdale and has been funded by Community Foundation for Calderdale.

For many people, video calls made from smart phones and computers have become an everyday occurrence during the pandemic, but for some they are out of reach due to fear of technology, lack of access to a smartphone, tablet or laptop computer or concerns over the cost.

The team at Disability Partnership are now looking to make contact with people who could benefit from a video call with a friend, family member or small video social group.

They will bring a tablet computer to you and connect you with your friend or to a social group on a video call, handing over the computer for you to enjoy the meet-up, then collect it afterwards, when the call is finished.

They are also keen to make contact with people who are already making video calls but have friends or family members who are digitally excluded and might benefit.
