Hello <<First Name>> 

Everyone Connected - Devices available to support individuals in England

We are pleased to share that we have over 300 tablets available through our Everyone Connected (formerly DevicesDotNow) scheme. This initiative provides devices to help the most vulnerable individuals across the UK, enabling them to access online information and support during this challenging time. 
Further information on applying for devices can be found on the project webpage including the eligibility criteria for recipients. You can read the Terms and Conditions of the scheme here.
Applications are open for one week only and all England based centres are eligible to apply. Good Things Foundation will allocate these devices to centres on a first-come, first-served basis but we are prioritising (1) centres that haven’t received devices yet, and (2) those that have already had devices through the scheme and have complied with all reporting requirements.
If you are interested in applying for devices, please complete the application form by 5pm on Thursday 26th November (please note that as devices will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, completing the form quickly will increase your chance of success). 
NB. The application form and supporting documentation list the project as DevicesDotNow to allow us to track previous recipients of devices. Please be assured that these devices are being distributed through our Everyone Connected scheme.

Earlier this year we launched a Slack workspace for our community partners to chat to one another and to share best practice and expertise. 

Slack is a messaging platform designed to make communication easier within organisations, teams and projects, it has lots of
features such as direct messaging, private groups and themed channels you can join. You can upload and share content, as well as react to posts with emojis and comments. Slack can be accessed through a browser on a computer or laptop, or through a free app on any mobile device. 

If there is an area in which you think another community organisation might be able to provide you with advice, then our Slack group is the place to ask your questions! 

We would like the group to be a positive place to help you get the most out of being part of the network. We’ve created some
guidance around where to post your discussions/queries and what types of content might not be suitable.

To join our Good Things Foundation Community Partners Slack group, follow this
link and then enter when asked for the workspace URL. You can use Slack through your browser on a desktop or laptop computer, or through the official Slack app on a mobile device.

All contacts in the Online Centres Network agree to receive the weekly newsletters when they sign up to join the network but if you think you shouldn't have received this email, then please let us know at or unsubscribe below.
