Shining Stars has been working throughout the pandemic to support local residents facing challenges during lockdown.

They have now launched a Let’s Get Digital scheme supported by Tesco and MENCAP.

The initiative is funding 27 tablet computers with keyboards and a free six month internet package for people with learning difficulties in the area.

A spokesperson said:

“Shining Stars are pleased to introduce Let’s Get Digital to help people with learning difficulties access learning platforms which they might not have had access to otherwise.

“The scheme is also aiming to provide digital training for everyone to ensure digital inclusion is increased around the district.”
