Bee Together borrowed 5 iPads as part of our tablet lending scheme. They used the tablets to set up an online knitting group, connecting people who felt lonely on an evening but found it difficult to get out of the house.
Bee Together is a Time To Shine project supporting older people who are learning disabled and socially isolated. They work to find out why people are isolated and put them in contact with organisations that can help them.
Bee Together identified four socially isolated older ladies who shared a love of knitting and found if difficult to get out of their accommodation on an evening and supported them to start an online knitting group.
