Connecting Tulse Hill

A partnership with the aim of providing a collective response to addressing digital exclusion in Tulse Hill during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The partnership was initially formed by the following organisations: Tulse Hill Labour Ward Councillors, Jubilee Primary School, Tree Shepherd and High Trees Community Development Trust.

The partnership had multiple objectives. It worked toward ensuring that individuals could access and apply for welfare support to which they may be entitled. It also made sure individuals could take part in online courses that were being delivered by High Trees. Children and young people were supported to engage in their remote school support. Individuals and families were also helped to stay connected to each other via video-calls.

To make these objectives achievable the partnership quickly organised all of the resources to manage the project and put all of the pieces into place to get the equipment out to those in need as an emergency response.

The initiative was also supported by further Tulse Hill based organisations including St. Matthews Project, YellowQube and Holy Trinity Primary School, and three Tenants and Residents Associations: St Matthews, Tulse Hill Estate and St. Martins Estate. These partners became active referrers into the project.
