In March 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Voice cLoud launched a digital inclusion programme and digital access consultation, which explored creative and innovative ways to keep people connected.
We worked with, and supported, many vulnerable people who were disproportionately affected by the impact of extended social restrictions and national lockdowns, running digital projects which connected people across Suffolk; friends, relatives and strangers as well as further afield.
Thank you to East Suffolk Council
In April, 2021 The Voice cLoud were delighted to announce the continuation of our popular project ‘Connections’, a year long project which comprised monthly online interactive ‘How To’ Zoom sessions.
The presentations were funded as part of the Hidden Needs programme by East Suffolk Council and featured bespoke presentations by experts and professionals, covering unique and popular subjects that will offered the chance to learn some neat and enviable new skills.
The sessions were free to attend, held online and were designed to tackle the effects of extended social isolation and loneliness which occurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Each session promotes social and mental activity, and provided an opportunity to connect with others whilst also trying out, and learning, new skills and meeting old and new friends.
Each of the sessions were also recorded and are available to watch again – making the series a digital legacy for anybody else who might wish to pick up a new skill or learn something that has always fascinated them!
