Helping isolated older residents get online

Breezie is a tablet device that makes the internet accessible by removing jargon, clutter and confusing set-up processes.

Each of these Samsung tablets is built with personalised home screens, featuring pre-installed apps that are picked according to the interests and needs of each user, like Skype so they can communicate with family and friends.

Each device has a 4G sim built in, so runs off the mobile network, therefore users won’t need to have the internet installed at home to use them. And, all users will be shown how to use their devices, so you don't need to be confident using new technology.

So far we have given 75 Breezie tablets to older members of the community and we have already seen the device making a big difference to some of their lives.   

If you or somebody you know could benefit from Breezie, please fill out our online referral form below and someone will be in touch within 3 days to discuss more.

Please read the participation agreement before completing the request form:
