Tablet lending

Are you a Leeds based organisation working with digitally excluded people? Leeds Libraries' tablet lending scheme could help you bridge the gap between those online and offline.

We know that supporting non-users and limited users to become digitally included will bring wider social benefits: helping them to be better informed, more confident using online tools, feeling more independent and less isolated.

Tablets can only be borrowed by organisations rather than individuals. We will work with organisations who borrow the tablets to collect evidence of impact so that we know how our support has benefited the individuals.

To find out how your organisation can borrow some tablets and partner with us to help drive digital inclusion in Leeds, visit www.digitalinclusionleeds.comExternal link.

For even more sessions, visit the Leeds Adult Learning website.
