Good Things Foundation is working with Salford City Council on a landmark digital inclusion project across the city to help the most disadvantaged residents gain the confidence and capability to become independent users of computers and the internet.
The programme will work with Salford-based community organisations to support 7,800 Salford residents over two years, 80% of whom must be facing social exclusion. Residents will be engaged in digital through local community settings and helped to develop basic digital skills and confidence.
The programme will also have a strong focus on sustainability. Both we and Salford City Council want community organisations to have the skills, capacity and resource to be able to build digital inclusion into their day-to-day mission and to continue helping residents after the programme has ended.
If you become a member of the Salford network you’ll receive an excellent range of benefits which have been developed in line with feedback from community centres based in Salford. Now, we’re delighted to say that you can sign up to join the Salford network and we’d love to welcome you on board.
Throughout this programme we want to work with organisations like yours to make sure you have the resource, skills, capacity and ongoing support you need to help disadvantaged people improve their digital skills.
