Perth & Kinross Learning Project

What can the project offer me or someone I am working with?

Our Perth and Kinross Project supports adults over 16, who are resident in Perth and Kinross and who identify as disabled or a carer to learn digital skills. We have a great team of volunteers who can support learners one to one, or you may be supported by Amulree who is the Learning Coordinator for this area. Our services are free, person centred and confidential, and we will support you to learn the things that matter to you. We can either support you on equipment you already own, or we can offer you an equipment loan if you don’t own any equipment or would like to try something new.

Usually we offer face to face support to our learners, but during the COVID-19 pandemic, all support is being offered remotely by phone call or video call.

How do I refer myself, a relative or someone I am working with?

Quotes from our Perthshire learners:

“I can now use my tablet to go online and see family photos. I felt I was always missing out on seeing them.

“I am learning how to use the iPad so I can help Simon who has a visual impairment. I was impressed that Lead Scotland not only give Simon one to one support in our house, but they help me too as a carer. We have both learned so much and can share things together like audio books and music. We have planned holidays using our iPad and Simon uses it as a radio. Our quality of life has definitely improved”.

How can I volunteer to support this project?

We are always looking for more volunteers to support our projects. We have a range of roles that can suit your available time and experience. We can provide training, out of pocket expenses and opportunities to our volunteers which are as fulfilling as they are rewarding. For more information please see our volunteering page.

Quote from one of our Perthshire volunteers:

“It is great. Volunteering to show someone how to use a computer has given me skills for my CV”.
