What is Reconnect?

Reconnect is a service open to adults of all ages living who feel they need support to improve their health and wellbeing in Edinburgh and East Lothian. We provide a friendly and welcoming environment in which to do this.

The service is comprised of a range of projects that address a variety of needs. Whether support is needed as a result of digital exclusion or social isolation, to get back into work, build digital skills, we have a project that can help.

We also support new businesses, charities and social enterprises to use technology to become more efficient and improve their presence in an online world.

How does it work?

The majority of our projects use a one-to-one approach in which adults are matched as closely as possible to one of our volunteers, based on their specific personal requirements. We also offer digital support sessions in a range of locations as part of our Learn Digital project.

PROJECT - Growing Your Ideas

Supporting new businesses, charities & social enterprises

Do you have a business idea but don’t know where to start? Or perhaps your small business isn’t generating the sales you’d hoped? We’re here to provide support for entrepreneurs working hard to get ideas off the ground.

Our detailed programme will equip you with the digital skills necessary to run a business, develop your brand and build a presence to promote your services online. You’ll be directly supported by our Graphic Designer & Communications Officer and one of our digital befrienders, providing professional knowledge and advice. Whether you’re in sales, arts, or thinking of starting a small charity or social enterprise, we’re offering support.

Please see https://peopleknowhow.org/reconnect/growing-your-ideas.

If you feel you would benefit from this project, get in touch today! We’ll discuss your specific personal requirements and find the support that’s right for you.
