Digital Exclusion Funding
Dear Parents & Carers,
The Norfolk Assistance Scheme has acquired funding from DEFRA to address digital exclusion in Norfolk. The money has been earmarked to supply lap tops for a certain remit:-
- For school work
- Looking for work
- Maintaining UC claim
- Engaging in virtual support
- Effected by isolation/loneliness
Please see the attached FAQs sheet about this scheme but the main points to consider are:-
- NAS would prefer if the application is made by a professional on behalf of the family if at all possible.
- The Family would have to meet the NAS criteria to qualify. Specifically to have less than £500 in savings and be able to provide bank statements. Please see https://www.norfolk.gov.uk/care-support-and-health/support-for-living-independently/money-and-benefits/norfolk-assistance-scheme for eligibility criteria and the portal to make an application.
If anyone would like to discuss this further then please contact Carl Harris on 01553763679 or 07788953408.
