• Reconnecting the vulnerable

The Salvos Youth and Family Domestic Violence Service teams from the South Australia/Northern Territory Division were delighted to meet with Laura Messing from @Altera Digital Health last week for a handover of more than 28 laptops for young people and women in their care to use.


“Imagine having to leave your device behind and not being able to have connectivity at such a critical time,” said Laura. She was thinking of the women and children who turn to the Salvos for crisis support. “Or being a young person unable to afford basic technology to support study or finding a job.”


Katie Lawson, State Manager, Youth Services SA/NT, said that these laptops would provide “independence and boost our clients’ ability to reconnect. So much of our daily lives depends on access to technology. and now we can provide this at critical times in the lives of those we support.


“We are so grateful to Altera for their generosity and compassion.”
