Meet some of our members we’ve supported
The ENRYCH Connect service started in February 2019. Whilst the service itself was a new addition to the growing ENRYCH family, Connects team members have at least 10 years prior experience with offering a similar service that used to be run by Leicestershire County Council.
In the last year, ENRYCH Connect have reached out to over 200 adults living in Leicestershire.
We support individuals living with a disability including learning difficulties and mental health issues, as well as their (often forgotten) carers. We aim to help people who are at risk of experiencing isolation, loneliness or social disadvantages as they struggle to access online information and services.
The training is individualised and based around the members personal requirements. This can include things like Skyping friends and family, to increasing confidence with online shopping and banking. Being able to write an online journal to creating address labels. Or setting up their Laptop, tablet or smartphone, so they can use the equipment with ease.
Some names have been changed to protect our service users privacy.
