Free Digital Inclusion Training
We provide training to organisations that are working with digitally excluded groups, particularly older people, people with disabilities, unemployed people, social housing tenants and families in poverty.
In particular, we can train frontline staff and volunteers (for example, customer advisors, tenant support officers, librarians) so they can confidently show people how to use technology.Please see the course overviews below. 1 hour/1.5 hour sessions can be combined to form longer courses and all courses can be tailored to the needs of your organisation.
