Create connections: to make people who are isolated or excluded from society aware of opportunities and support them to take part. and

Bring down barriers: Tackling digital exclusion and removing it as a barrier to inclusion in a pro-active way.

The funding is available , what we need now is good ideas and organisations working together in partnership to make this happen.


Please come to the workshop to learn more and see who else  you could work with. By the end of the workshop, we hope to have several local groups who want to work together during August on a final proposal for how to make the greatest difference with this funding

Workshop : WEDNESDAY AUGUST 4TH 3.30 – 4.30PM
