Digital Families Programme: A digital participation programme for Gypsy/Traveller families

Project Details

Description

Partly funded by the Scottish Government Child Poverty Delivery Fund, this project supports digital participation for Gypsy/Traveller families. By addressing the digital divide, and mobilsing families, the programme aims to increase learning and skills, and in the long term, alleviate poverty and improve future life, work and learning prospects. Families are given a Digikit (consisting of an iPad, accessories and learning planner) and, supported by a teacher from TENET (Traveller Education Network Scotland), are mobilised to engage in home-based learning with the aim to transition to formal schooling.
