We hope that you are all well at this time. We know that this is a very difficult time for everyone, and we thank you for all the support.
We are running weekday online zoom sessions and you can find the timetable and a guide to using zoom below. We have sent out information/engagement packs to our day service participants and these can be done independently or with our daily zoom sessions. (Links to the Packs can be found below)
Please get in touch with our support staff for more information.
Now more than ever, digital skills are so essential to ensure that we can all stay connected, continue life-long learning and growing as people. For the past six years, there have been several initiative and projects that SJOG Liffey services have been engaged or lead out on to build the capacity and digital skills among the men and women we support. The aim has been to create a robust infrastructure and upskills support staff to engage in accessible digital tools.
From week one of the lockdown, the men and women supported by the team at Liffey Service asked could the support staff go online, so they did. With a robust team and a strategic plan on how to reach as many people, the plan was rolled out and continues to evolve daily. The success has been thanks to the men and women’s own digital skills, the natural support in their homes and hard work of support staff to break down the technology fears that so many people in society face. The online interactive sessions have grown from 15 men and women logging in on day one to over 70 people engaged in an exercise session with Shelly at 10:30 every day. There are 40 different live sessions happening each week with 11 sessions every weekday.
