Support for Ukrainians in Ashford
Through June, we have continued our support for asylum seekers. Refugees often are limited in their access to digital hardware and skills, and so Digital Kent is keen to help out where we can. Our Engagement Officer Doris Shaba-Jeffries was invited to the Beehive Hub in Ashford in June, to an event set up to offer additional support to Ukrainian families.
A number of different organisations came together for this fantastic event. The Beehive Hub invited host families offering their homes to refugees, and Ukrainian families settling into the Ashford area, to show the huge support coming from the Ashford community. Digital Kent was there to offer Hardware Access Referrals to those without digital devices, and to offer digital skills help for those in need. Well done to Ashford for their show of support!
