About this talk

Since starting as a £5m covid response programme to get up to 9,000 people at clinical risk online, Connecting Scotland has grown and now aims to bring 50,000 people on low incomes in Scotland online. The programme provides a device, 4G internet connection and 2 years of data and support. We’ve delivered in partnership with all 32 local authorities in Scotland and hundreds of third sector organisations, through our delivery partner, the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations.

Come and hear how the programme came into fruition and grew during a global pandemic.
