AbilityNet is delighted to announce a new digital device scheme in partnership with Lenovo, called ConnectingU.
ConnectingU will see 300 digital devices (Lenovo 500e Chromebook 2nd Gen and SIM-enabled Lenovo Tablet M10) and support made available to anyone struggling to access any digital service - from banking to accessing official government services online. Recipients must be UK-based and over the age of 50, or UK-based disabled people over 18 years of age.
Who can apply
Organisations and charities are invited to apply for devices on behalf of the individuals they support. Please note: Individuals are not able to apply on their own behalf.
The eligibility criteria for a device are as follows:
Recipients must be over the age of 50 and be digitally excluded - to be digitally excluded means they do not have a suitable digital device.
Recipients must be over 18 with a disability of any kind - and also not currently have a suitable digital device
How to apply

The deadline for applications is 17:00 on 09 May 2022. All enquiries to Chris Grant via e-mail [email protected]
