People Know How & Ragged University are working together to create an innovative learning experience for our communities.

What is Re:connect?

Re:Connect provides support to people who are considered to be disadvantaged by improving their digital literacy and enabling them to make use of the internet. We aim to reduce social isolation and associated effects such as loss of confidence, loneliness and low self-esteem. We are developing this project with two partner organisations that have been central to the project design and development, namely Ragged University and VIE– Value, Involve, Evolve. Together; we have designed a process to ensure digital inclusion, by:

  • Supporting participants as they explore the potential of the internet
  • Identifying their “spark of interest” in getting online and/or developing new IT skills
  • Encouraging the use of the internet to support social-connectedness
