Connecting communities. Partnerships work
Our team can work with yours to help local people gain the confidence they need to get online. Just as every learner is different, so is every project we run with our partners. We are also a UKOnline Centre Partner, covering topics such as:
- internet and email,
- how to complete an online form
- hunting for jobs online and preparing for interviews
- exploring health issues
- taking up new hobbies
Online basics. Hear from our learners
From complete beginners to someone who is just a bit rusty on their skills, we've helped local people gain the confidence to get online.
Some of our learners have never switched on a computer. Others want to share their photos and Skype their family and friends.
Overcoming the fear of getting it wrong or being unsafe is the first step to accessing the benefits of being online.
Better Health Online. Delivering in Kingston
Lack of skills, knowledge and the confidence to research health information and use the new digital health services like e-prescriptions, puts people at a disadvantage.
Community Connected is testing an innovative, hyperlocal, basic online skills programme to support residents sign up to services using tablets or their smartphone. Training sessions are supported by volunteers we have trained as digital champions.
So if you work with resdients living in Hook, Norbiton or Central Kingston contact us to discuss how we can support your service users and train your volunteers.
Get your community connected
If the people you support need a bit of extra help to learn basic online skills and make the most of the internet please get in touch. We can work with your organisation to put together a funding bid, plan an interactive training programme and deliver it on your doorstep.
