Need help to get online?

The Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership can help if you:

  • live in Edinburgh
  • have a physical disability that stops you from using technology – this could be limited hand function, low vision, speech difficulties
  • need help with these activities online: food shopping, ordering medication, banking, keeping in touch, activities and apps.

We can help by:

  • identifying problems and recommending solutions for you
  • offering practical advice and guidance to keep you safe online
  • signposting you to other digital services that can support your needs
  • arranging a more detailed assessment with an occupational therapist.
