Health Connections is the latest beneficiary of JT’s Community Giving Scheme.

JT has donated three digital display screens to Health Connections to help the charity promote its mission to enable everyone in the Bailiwick of Guernsey to be connected to available support and up to date information that enables them to live happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives.

Health Connections will also use the screens to promote and run its free Community Connector training sessions, which are delivered each month in the CONNECT space in their Smith Street shop.

The screens will also be used to teach people how to make the most of the charity’s online directory, so that they can find the support that matters to them or a loved one.

Bella Farrell, CEO and Director of Health Connections, said: ‘We are committed to working with and promoting our directory partners to everyone in the community and these screens are an important resource to enable our work. 

‘Like JT, we believe in connecting people and technology is a powerful tool to inform islanders about services that can improve their health and wellbeing, especially for those that are not so digitally adept.

‘We are very grateful to the JT Community Giving scheme for this donation, it’s enabled us to showcase our community partners and the support they provide islanders much more easily using our shop locations in town’ 

JT Community Giving aims to help local projects and initiatives by offering them the opportunity to apply for funding, devices, subscriptions, technical support, or even hands-on help from some of JT’s many willing volunteers.

Kate Marshall, JT’s Head of Guernsey Enterprise said: ‘Making a difference and a positive contribution to the community we live and work in, is very important to every one of us at JT.

‘As a digital company, we are delighted to be able to help a local charity to widen their reach by providing the technology needed to teach people about all the amazing support services there are available to them in Guernsey.’

The Community Giving scheme is open to all registered charities, schools, and community groups across the Channel Islands that meet at least one of four criteria: community support, digital inclusivity, raising awareness of mental and physical health and wellbeing, and environmental improvement.
