East Renfrewshire Good Causes recently provided funding to help purchase 16 tablets enable 16 local people supported by Cosgrove Care to get connected. Russell MacMillan from East Renfrewshire Good Causes dropped into Cosgrove’s offices in Giffnock to hand over the tablets to Cosgrove’s Chief Executive, Heather Gray.
The tablets will allow people with learning disabilities to take control of their supports and get connected to online activities. Heather Gray said, ‘We are really delighted to have received this support from ERC Good Causes. Many of the people we work with have been isolated and lonely during lockdown and the tablets will allow them to take back some control of their lives. It’s great to be working in partnership with Russell again and we are really pleased that yet more local people are benefitting from the support of this incredible charity.Heather Gray, CEO of Cosgrove Care
