Mind in Croydon joins Reboot UK as delivery partner

Mind in Croydon are pleased to be a delivery partner for Reboot UK, an initiative which enables families in poverty, homeless people and people with mental health issues, who are far more likely to make up some of the 12.6 million people in the UK who aren’t online and don’t have basic digital skills, to gain these skills.

These are the same groups who are at a greater risk of poor health and who stand to gain the most from improved digital skills and access to online health resources.

Funded by the Big Lottery, the Tinder Foundation are leading the Reboot UK project pilot to test innovative new models of supporting people in poverty to improve their health and wellbeing through digital technology. It specialises in supporting people from three key groups: i) families in poverty, ii) homeless people iii) people with poor mental health.

Consortium partners Mind, Homeless Link and Family Fund, works alongside the Tinder Foundation and local community partners on the 12 month project, researching and developing pilot interventions before putting these models into practice in the community.
