Digital inclusion

Between November 2014 and March 2015, we supported the Digital Outreach initiative in Lincoln, by promoting workshops run at the local Argos store. These were aimed at people with little or no ICT skills, or who lacked confidence in using ICT. For a cost of £20, they could have access to a workshop session to learn how to use a tablet. Included in the price of the workshop was a tablet for them to take away and keep. As a result of our activities, the workshops were over-subscribed and the project was extended from the initial November-January timescale to the end of March.
