Healthier Futures
Black Country and West Birmingham

Wish you could use the internet but don't have a smart phone or laptop?

Need help learning how to use the internet?

Want to learn how to use your phone or laptop?

If the answer is yes to any of the above, we are offering people who live in the Black Country and West Birmingham the chance to borrow a SMART mobile phone or Geobook Tablet for three months with support to use it. There will also be telephone numbers you can call, an email address and web site with lots of helpful information. We can also give you details of a free basic IT skills course being offered by Walsall/West Midlands colleges.

If you decide to take up this offer, we will ask you some questions at the start to determine the support that you need, and at the end so we can make changes where needed.

If you think the device has had a positive impact on your life, you may be able to keep the device at the end of the three-month programme.

If you would like to take part in this project please speak to a healthcare professional, or to find out more please visit:
