Using technology to support the people you care for

For many vulnerable people we care for, the pandemic will mean a dramatic reduction in activities and family contact. Staff may also have less free time to spend with the people you support as things change. We need to minimise the impact for those you care for and their families. In this webinar, we will explore how technology can offer some help to connect people and to bring ‘outside experiences’ in.
