Digital Inclusion Project.

South London and Maudsley NHS Trust

“Digital Inclusion refers to the activities necessary to ensure that all individuals and

communities, including the most disadvantaged, have access to and use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs)” – Digitalinclusion.org


What is on offer? 

Mentoring - We offer 1-1 sessions to help service users gain essential digital skills and confidence in using digital devices (phone, tablet or laptop). We will also be offering group sessions in some locations.

Devices - Sharing devices (such as tablets or smartphones) to support access to SLaM services

and beyond.

Data - If a service user dos not have access to WIFI at home, we may also provide data so that they can get online. 

Where is this happening?

Our Digital Inclusion project is running at the Maudsley Hospital in Denmark Hill and at the

Bethlem in Croydon

Who is this for?

The project offers digital inclusion support for patients of SLaM. We are prioritising those who

are most likely to be digitally excluded:

  • the unemployed
  •  older adults over 65
  •  non-native English speakers
  • service users who are homeless, living in
  • temporary or unstable accommodation,
  • or who live in social housing
  • service users on benefits or who have lower income
  •  those with a disability in addition to their mental health needs


How do I start?

A service user must be referred to us by a health service professional who can contact the team for further details.
