1. Free basic IT and Internet skills training

    Posted by willroby at Wed Sep 05, 2012 2:58 pm

    I have been given a small amount of money to run a pilot project, to March '13, to allow carers, mainly in north Liverpool's areas of worst multiple deprivation, free access to basic IT and Internet skills training. I'm working with Liverpool Carers Centre so if you are connected there you will be notified. Otherwise e-mail me, if you can, will.roby@edt.org.uk or call 01512030213 and leave your name and a contact number.

    Wouldn't anybody logged onto the site, reading this or replying to it or capable of sending an email already have basic internet skills?

    True and that is whay, if you read my original message, you will see that i have entered 'if you can' and included a phone number.

    Aside from this, it is always possible that readers may know a carer who is not IT literate and may be interested in learning.

    Great stuff Will :D
    Age UK also have similar schemes across the UK.
    For over three years we have campaigned to get carers on the internet with a free recycled laptop and have successfully got well over 100 carers on line.
    Maybe you could pass this on, because we are always in need of laptops, there are never enough to cope with the need to help carers with their feelings of isolation.

    I will let our members know who live in Liverpool area. Keep up the good work.
