We provide iPad training to families helped by Family Fund who are raising disabled and seriously ill children and young people. We can also offer information to families using tablets and other devices on our digital resources page.

Coronavirus update

We are still running online one-to-one sessions in the current lockdown to families who have received a grant from us.

Answer a few quick questions about your training needs and we’ll get in touch soon.

Online sessions take place with one of our trainers, via your iPad. They last between one to two hours and trainers will chat to you first about what you want to learn.

This might include:

  • How to stay in touch with family and friends online
  • Staying safe online
  • The iPad’s accessibility settings (how to adjust settings to support your child’s individual needs)
  • Fun educational activities (for example, use of apps like GarageBand or Apple Book store)
  • How to access services online.

We are currently unable to run face-to-face group sessions but we are working really hard to provide these services online and will update our pages as soon as we can offer this.  If you run a community group such as a parent carer forum and you want us to get in touch when we can arrange an online session, sign up by emailing our team.

Family feedback

Many families have already accessed our online sessions. Here’s some of the feedback we’ve received so far:

“It helped me get the most out of home schooling with the information”

“Ian was extremely helpful very patient and talked through various areas at a good pace. Was happy to answer our questions and was very kind and flexible to offer training to fit around suited time for us this was very much appreciated. I feel a lot more confident with how much the iPad can offer us to support my daughters learning.”
