Breakthrough UK - North Connecting
Breakthrough UK is a Manchester based disabled people’s organisation. We are led by disabled people, and we support other disabled people to work and live independently.
We offer one-to-one support over 12 weeks.
We can support you if you live in North Manchester, are over 18 and consider yourself to be a disabled person. We can:
- Find out what you are interested in and connect you to activities
- Support you to access and understand services (including health services) and become more independent
- Support you to become more digitally confident
- Support to become more confident travelling
- Tell you about other groups and organisations who can help too
- Contact activities and agencies on your behalf
- Help connect you to organisations that can support you with everyday things.
The North Connecting Programme also offers:
- A digital focus and includes one face to face digital workshop designed for anyone with limited to no experience of using digital technology.
- This covers basic IT such as accessing Wi-Fi, setting up an email, using Zoom, contacting your GP online and online grocery shopping.
- There is also a focus on Online Safety. Avoiding internet scams, protecting privacy and identifying misinformation around health and news.
- There are also opportunities to help you develop digital skills that suit their personal interests.
- Further signposting is given towards apps and other technology that can aid with accessibility needs.
There are still spaces available on the September to December 22 Cohort.
