Tablets Against Loneliness

Tablets Against Loneliness is a national awareness and support campaign that uses donated tablets to help reduce feelings of loneliness. 

We have developed a framework helping care settings to obtain tablets and to better understand the value of video communication during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will also provide technical support to those supporting your patients and communities when required. 

About COVID-19

Further information

The COVID-19 pandemic is stopping many people in care homes, hospices and hospitals from seeing their loved ones. Tablets Against Loneliness provides donated tablets to care settings. Video calling can then take place between residents, patients and their loved ones. 

Unfortunately, not everyone has access to a tablet or the internet. We are requesting that  businesses, organisations and members of community donate their used / unused tablets. These will be used in care settings across the country. Once you have contacted us we will put you in direct contact with the closest care facility to you that requires one or more tablets. 

Once donated, the Digital Legacy Association will help ensure that this extremely vulnerable group are able to stay connected to people who are important to them. Tablets will also allow those with dementia to access activities virtually reducing some of the weight of the lockdown.
