Fingal Inclusion Week - Keeping the Senior Ukrainian Community connected.
The Fingal County Council launched a new initiative during Inclusion week called Senior Connect. The Acorn Tablet is part of an innovative digital communications programme by Fingal County Council to keep senior Ukrainian people empowered and connected in the area. The Acorn will be used to facilitate virtual English, crafts and exercise classes.
“When considering the challenges of integration for our Ukrainian community, providing access to digital support services, connections to family and news from home is important. Our ACORN Ukrainian version provides an age-friendly and inclusive way to support our older Ukrainian community to stay connected, informed and involved. We are very proud to have been selected to participate on this important project with Fingal County council. ” Philip Hogan, CEO,Origin Care Group
