Our popular Access Project provided computer and internet access in an informal and friendly setting, where people could learn how to use a computer and the internet in small groups with one-to-one support. Covid-19 changed the way that many of us communicated and we decided to extend and re-develop the Access programme so that it better met the needs of our community. Welcome to 'In Touch - Helping You To Connect Digitally'. The project does exactly what it says on the tin, and people can drop-in and access support to learn how to make the most of connecting digitally. 

 

The list below gives an idea of some of the things that you can learn about:

 

  • Computer basics.
  • Using Microsoft Office.
  • Designing leaflets, signs and making artwork.
  • Using the Internet for research or shopping.
  • Using Social Media.
  • Taking, storing and editing photos.
  • Writing CV's, job searches and filling forms.
  • Online learning.
  • Using new techonoigies life Zoom and Facetime to keep in touch.
  • Reasearching your family tree.
  • Internet safety.
  • How to use email.
  • Learning all about Apps.
  • Games and leisure.
  • Online banking, booking GP appointments or ordering prescriptions online.

 

 

People learn at their own pace at the twice-weekly sessions which are run on a drop-in basis. Some people attend to build their knowledge and confidence and improve employment prospects (some going on to successfully secure employment) others as an introduction to more formal ICT training whilst others enjoy the social aspect of the sessions. .

 

We're Back

 

Sessions restart on Monday 17th May. Throughout the pandemic we have implemented strategies to keep people as safe as possible. As we slowly come out of restrictions, we will continue to do all we can to ensure your safety. For now, we are asking only that previous service users attend sessions, but hopefully from 21st June, assuming that there are no changes to the proposed easing of restriction, we should be fully open to the public again.
