In 2015 Cotswold Friends receiving funding from the Notgrove Trust to start the ‘Connect’ Programme. Connect was implemented to help our most isolated clients currently on the befriending programme with Cotswold Friends. The pilot programme was based on testing how tablet computers could enhance the connectivity of lives of older people who are vulnerable, isolated and lonely. We believed that enabling these people to comfortably use a tablet to order shopping, speak to a family member on Skype, manage banking and send emails they would benefit from purposeful activities, learning new skills and socializing as well as experience an increase in self-confidence and self-worth and a decline in loneliness and isolation.
