PROJECT SEMAPHORE - enabling communication for isolated veterans
A successful bid to the Aged Veteran's Fund has secured funding for Project Semaphore. The aim of the project is to reach out to isolated veterans - who are judged by a BT reach survey to be worse off by at least £1,000 due to lack of access to the internet - and to provide them with an iPad and iPad/internet familiarisation training. With modern and mobile technology, those previously isolated will be able to connect with their friends and regain some of their independence.
