Haddington and District Community Council (H&DCC) are pleased to announce our Haddington Tablet initiative.

With funding from the Haddington and Lammermuir Area Partnership, H&DCC has purchased 12 Samsung Tablets to distribute to two care homes and Our Community Kitchen in Haddington.

These devices are to assist people video call their family and friends over the Christmas and New Year period and will stay with them for as long as the pandemic lasts.

H&DCC felt it was important that people in Care Homes and people currently feeling isolated in their homes had access to these types of devices to assist tackle loneliness and help with their general well being.  It’s good to talk, but it’s just as important to be able to see a friendly face.
