In December we start the next round of Log On, our digital inclusion project. This time round we're working with the charitable foundation Clarion Futures to reach residents in social housing provided by the Clarion Housing Group, but our sessions will be open to anyone in the borough who wants to learn how to get more out of their devices.
Philippa Russell, our Community Links Worker, explains the aims of the project.
We're hoping to reach residents in sheltered housing who aren't generally offered this kind of training, but we're also offering twice monthly drop-in sessions open to everyone. We like to show people how they can use a smartphone to access a range of NHS services, as well as activities in their local area that can support their health and wellbeing.
The beauty of drop in sessions is that the learning can be tailored to what each person wants, so if you want to learn how to do something else with your device, we can accommodate that. Volunteer digital champions will be helping out at all the sessions. Come along and learn how to get more from your smartphone or tablet.
