WM Housing Group has signed a two-year contract with Social Telecoms to provide mobile phones for the business and help with their digital inclusion strategy. As part of the deal, Social Telecoms has given £5,000 towards WM Housing’s digital inclusion project, to help its tenants get online using kiosk computer terminals in the group’s offices in Coventry, Birmingham, Hereford, and Worcester.
The kiosks will give tenants access to the internet and use it to pay bills and access online accounts securely. The donation will also help towards installing wi-fi across all of its offices and helping more tenants with access to broadband at home.
Ian Tinsley, director of ICT, WM Housing, said: “We are delighted to be working with Social Telecoms. The company’s status as a social enterprise means that it shares many of our values and fits in with what we are trying to achieve as an organisation.”
