KOMP! No Isolation Project
A project run in collaboration with Irish in Britain
In December 2020 the Cultural Society was invited to take part in a pilot project run by Irish in Britain and funded by the National Lottery. Twenty new devices, KOMPs, were distributed across the country to elderly members among the Irish community. Three were distributed here amongst our community.
With the goal of ending involuntary loneliness and social isolation the creators of the device, ‘No Isolation’, a Norwegian company, was founded in October 2015. Their mission was to develop communication tools specifically for those who haven’t grown up with technology.
We currently have three Komps on trial in Irish homes in the region. If feedback is positive Irish in Britain we help us to fund more in the future. To learn more please watch the video.
