Supporting Digital Inclusion in the Face of COVID-19

Monday 27th April, 10:30–11:30 // online, via Zoom // free // book via Eventbrite

This event will introduce the 100% Digital Leeds team and demonstrate how we can help to improve the digital inclusion of your organisation and service users by building digital skills and confidence, offering access to equipment, being aware of funding opportunities, and knowing more about the free online tools and resources that can help motivate people to engage with digital.

If you’re working with vulnerable, excluded and isolated groups and are interested in digital inclusion, we would love to meet you. You don’t have to be doing any digital yet and we welcome people from a range of different organisations including Neighbourhood Networks, community projects, and social groups of all sizes. Whether you’re confident in engaging people with digital or want to find out how to get started, you and your organisation will benefit from the contacts, practical learning, and hints and tips on offer at this event.

Person-centred Care in the Digital Age

Monday 27th April, 12:00 – 13:00 // online, via Zoom // free // book via Eventbrite

There are a wide range of tools and resources available to support people to self-manage their conditions, from apps and online support groups to remote monitoring. However we know that 58% of over 60’s have a long-term condition, and these adults over 60 are least likely to have the basic digital skills to be online. This means that those who would benefit most from accessing these online tools to self-manage their conditions are the least likely to have the skills, access and motivation to do so. So – how do we ensure this key demographic are supported to make best use of the online world to improve their health and wellbeing?

Using myCOPD as a case study which is now available across Leeds for people living with COPD, this event will explore how barriers to self-management apps can be addressed through digital inclusion and how peer support groups have adapted their services in the face of COVID-19.
