Using Technology to connect With New People

csno01csno01 Member Posts: 74 Pioneering
Hi There,

I hope everyone is keeping safe and well.

I have a question on the use of Technology and online groups in order to connect with new people, due to the Pandemic.

Since Lockdown began, I am aware the use of both Technology and Social Media has become even more popular and has brought people together. I agree the Scope Forum is a great Platform for this kind of thing. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any others such as RNIB?

Many thanks,
CSn01

    Thanks for your response Janer1967.

    I bet there are. We just have to find them. 

    I heard about one on a News report for the visually impaired called Deathblind UK. That got me thinking about similar platforms. So I am on a quest ha ha.

    RNIB do have facebook groups for different parts of the UK which you might find helpful. :)
