Get Connected

Online help for Social Care organisations


Get Connected enables improved access for staff, people who use services and carers, so they can use the internet to communicate, learn and train. The two-year programme will enable adult care and support providers to access information and communication more effectively.


Organisations can apply by visiting: Get connected.


Computer literacy, and the internet in particular, are transforming the way we communicate, learn and work. It follows on from the successful launches of SCIE’s Social Care TV and the Dementia Gateway.


Stephen Goulder, SCIE’s Workforce Director says:

“We know that these days good ICT access isn’t an ‘add-on’. It is essential if care and support organisations are to have access to knowledge and learning. Service users will also be able to keep in touch with the world around them. This fund will help provide the equipment and skills to organisations to deliver high quality and more personalisedservices.”

Leading charities in the field Lasa and Charity Technology Trust are providing support to ‘Get Connected.’ Lasa will bring technical advice and resources to the project, whilst CTT will be managing the grant-making aspects of the project.


Online skills can be used in many ways, for example to:

  • Enable people who use your services to keep in touch with their communities
  • Improve the skills and knowledge of your staff
  • Keep teams up-to-date with the latest developments in policy and practice
