Hello <<First Name>>
I know many of our Online Centres are facing challenging times at the moment, with new ways of working changing the way your organisation is run - at least temporarily. I want to share my thanks with all of you for how quickly you’ve adapted to support your staff, volunteers and learners.
Over the past few weeks, 1,000 devices have been distributed to centres as part of the DevicesDotNow initiative on behalf of FutureDotNow. I would like to extend my thanks to each and every one of you that have set these devices up, distributed these to learners and have supported individuals virtually to use them. Your work makes an incredible difference to people’s lives in helping to support digital inclusion. If you would like to find out more about the project or request a device, you can visit our website.
If you’re looking for more support, as you adjust to the current situation, there are lots of useful links on our resources page which is updated daily. You can find lots of information around running your organisation online, helping your learners, managing your health and wellbeing and funding opportunities.
Finally, if you’ve not yet completed our survey, please spare 5 minutes to let us know how the current situation is impacting your organisation.
