Abdul Hameed, who has a learning disability and a visual impairment, Co-Trainer (LD and Sport), Mencap
More people with a learning disability are using the internet to connect with family and friends during this time, but the internet is not always a positive experience. You have to be safe online. I have experienced receiving dodgy emails, which I find stressful. I clicked on one once. It took me to a strange website and tried to make me pay, which made me feel agitated. Why are people doing this?
More help will make everyone feel at ease. Mencap can help with that and make people feel safer through our new programme. Let’s Get Digital helps people with a learning disability access technology and provide digital skills training to make the internet a safe place.
