Dorset Digital Doorway Scheme

For the full story go to:

People across the Dorset Council area that are in digital need can now apply for a free device and data.

The council has been awarded £20,000 for its new Digital Doorway scheme, which will see it issue around 60 tablets and laptops with up to two years’ worth of data, to people who are currently digitally excluded.

In addition to the devices and data, each recipient will be offered free training and support from one of Dorset Council’s volunteer digital champions.

Anyone who feels they have been digitally excluded can now apply to Digital Doorway for a new device.

All applicants must be aged over 18 and live in the Dorset Council area.

Organisations are also encouraged to refer people they believe could benefit from the scheme.

To apply for a device, or to refer someone for a device, go to the council’s online application  form

Anyone who needs helping filling-in, or accessing the form, can call the Digital Hotline on 01305 221048 (open Mon-Fri, 10am to noon) and a volunteer digital champion will help.
