DevicesDotNow


The DevicesDotNow Interim Impact Report #2 looks at campaign activity between 24 March - 26 June. It outlines: our ambitions, our achievements to date, who we have reached, who we have yet to reach - and tells some of the stories from the people that have received devices.

In this new socially distanced world, FutureDotNow and Good Things Foundation are coordinating action through a new initiative called DevicesDotNow, targeting digitally excluded households without access to the internet.

1.9 million households in the UK don’t have access to the internet, meaning many vulnerable people are now cut off from the outside world. It’s impossible to shield effectively without a device and connectivity. No internet means no access to government websites and other critical online services, no accurate health information, no online purchases, no online learning and no video chat with family and friends.

Frontline organisations are in desperate need of digital devices for the vulnerable people in their communities so they can help them stay connected with the outside world. Although DevicesDotNow has delivered 2,370 devices to date, we are still overwhelmed with demand and do not yet have the funds necessary to reach our first goal of helping 10,000 people.

Receiving a tablet with a sim and the associated support that goes with it can make huge, life-changing differences for people and is an important part of our national response, ensuring they can shield effectively and alleviating strain on the NHS.
