Family Fund is working with Tinder Foundation, Homeless Link and Mind on Reboot UK, an initiative set up to investigate the impact gaining digital skills has on people’s quality of life.

This 12 month project provides training for families living in poverty, particularly those with disabled children, homeless people and people with mental health problems.

Tinder Foundation has worked with individuals and communities on the benefits of digital technology through its 5,000 strong network of UK online centres.

Family Fund is hoping that Reboot UK will provide important learning about how best to personalise training to help improve the quality of life of families raising disabled children.

Cheryl Ward, Chief Executive at Family Fund said, “Family Fund is committed to removing the barriers to digital inclusion by providing essential grants and support services to families raising disabled and seriously ill children and young people across the UK. Our mission is for these families to have the same opportunities as others and we know getting online opens many doors to do just that.  We are pleased to be working with Tinder Foundation and the other consortium partners to test new ways to help those who need it the most.”
