Govan Housing Association
Housing associations not only provide affordable housing for people, but also support the community in which they are located in a diverse number of ways. They can be a vital source of local, accessible welfare information and support and frontline staff can act as amazing digital champions, which also can help streamline services, allowing staff to focus on wider work.
During Covid lockdowns, and in partnership with SCVO, Mhor Collective offered remote digital skills training and support for Govan Housing association tenants who were shielding and experiencing social isolation. Training was provided for both frontline staff and their tenants. A device was provided by Connecting Scotland and weekly remote support provided by Mhor Collective and the trained digital champions.
