We're working with Salford City Council on a landmark digital inclusion project called Digital You across the city to help the most disadvantaged residents gain the confidence and capability to become independent users of computers and the internet.
We're working 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 has 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.
Initial recruitment of centres for the Digital You network has now ended, but if you're interested in joining our mission, please do get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to help. Please note, you must become a member of the Online Centres Network in order to take part in Digital You.
