Find out how DevicesDotNow, a project providing emergency devices and data to those struggling due to Covid-19, helped Firoozeh and her family.

DevicesDotNow is aiming to get thousands of internet connected devices out to people who are further excluded from technology during the coronavirus outbreak.

People just like Firoozeh Salimi and her family, who came to the UK from Iran 8 months ago. With a household of two adults and two children with no internet or devices, the family relied heavily on community organisations and schools to access the internet.

With English as her second language and a disabled member of her family, it is crucial she can access the online support needed for the family.

Firoozeh has been supported by the Being Woman centre for the past few months and they have ensured she could get hold of the tablet as part of the DevicesDotNow campaign.
