The DGS Digital Buddies project has been built around the need for connection and digital inclusion. With the last 18 months seeing lots of services and social connections move online, there are many who have been excluded and cut off from society.

While working within North Berwick Resilience Group, the need for digital support for the older generation and people living with dementia became clear. We quickly realised that the issue wasn't the lack of devices but the lack of support for people to learn how to use the devices without someone being physically there to help.
