Final reminder - Connecting Scotland - Free digital devices and wifi for your unemployed clients
If you are planning to submit applications to Connecting Scotland for digital devices and wifi, here’s what unemployed young people shared via a recent survey which engaged 163 young people.
Of the 163 young people, 50 did not have any or the right device /wifi/confidence to apply for jobs online - 31% .
We have just under 6000 unemployed residents in Renfrewshire and assuming the same proportion are digitally excluded , that could be around 1800 who may be eligible and we have 400 available before Xmas to help bridge the gap.
If you decide to apply (and remember it’s a bank holiday weekend so applications should be in close of play Thursday 23 September) please let Kay know and if she can be of any assistance just get in touch.
