McWHINNIE Highlights Family Fund's 'Discover Digital' Summer Festival

>> 2 August 2023

Peterhead North and Rattray councillor Leeann McWhinnie is encouraging eligible parents to check out Family Fund’s ‘Discover Digital’ programme this summer.

Designed for families with a disabled or seriously ill child, participants in the programme will learn wide-ranging new skills with their iPad, like how to make art, a video game, a podcast or a movie, while also making friends and having fun. Family Fund has partnered with the RNIB and the charity will attend a number of sessions to support children and young people with a visual impairment.

Commenting on this initiative, Cllr Leeann McWhinnie said:

“Family Fund is a grant-making charity for families raising a disabled or seriously ill child, on a low income, and does excellent work helping them have the same choices, quality of life, opportunities and aspirations as wider families.

“The ‘Discover Digital’ summer festival is open to all children and young people with additional needs but is also a festival for the whole family, with siblings very welcome too.

“This is a great way to help develop new IT skills whilst at the same time having some fun.”
