A SocialBox.Biz Case Study update by Heather, 31 July 2020
SocialBox.Biz recently partnered with Housing Justice for a 2-day ‘Move On’ training designed to help homeless clients get back on their feet. 36 clients all received laptops through the SocialBox.Biz Laptops for the Homeless Initiative to learn about various aspects of well-being. The laptops offered clients the knowledge and tools needed to steer away from homeless. For instance, they were able to pay bills, listen to music, find jobs, watch movies, and keep in touch with loved ones.
“Working with Peter, Gio, Ian and everyone from SocialBox.Biz was amazing, and it’s essential to provide digital inclusion as part of sustainable move on support. We are extremely grateful to SocialBox.Biz for donating 36 laptops,” said the team at Housing Justice.
One client, Brent, said, “I learned about the legal documents a landlord needs to provide for private renting. I like to be able to refresh my mind with tenant’s rights. I also learned what 6 things a landlord should provide before entering a property.”
Another team member at Housing Justice added: “I hope you are keeping safe and well during the pandemic. Great to hear about the donations in Enfield, and to read the latest press release. This crisis period really highlights the importance of digital inclusion and the need for people to keep connected and prevention of social isolation. The work you guys are doing is amazing. “
This is something that the team at SocialBox.Biz have been doing for years and just during the C19 crises hundreds of people received much needed rehomed technology via SocialBox.Biz platform.
