Delivering effective services, enterprising solutions and exemplary homes and communities.
In line with our Digital Inclusion Action Plan, our Resident
Involvement and Community Development team delivered a free 6 weeks
computer skills course for some of our residents in Essex.
This course was facilitated by We Are Digital and was run at the Laindon Community Centre. It was aimed at helping our residents make the most of being online. Tasks such as; finding and apply for jobs, using public services, claiming benefits and setting up email accounts.
Nine residents signed up in total, with six of them completing the course and receiving a City & Guilds accreditation.
The feeback from the residents involved showed that they now have an increased confidence in using computers and as part of the course participation, each resident was provided with a laptop to encourage further learning and to continue their online journey.
