Having the skills and confidence to get online is a part of everyday life and is a great way to stay connected with friends and family, shop online and manage your money through online banking in the comfort of your own home.
West Lancashire Borough Council are dedicated to helping our digitally excluded residents get online. We have teamed up with “We Are Digital” to offer residents free 1-2-1 training sessions which can be done remotely at home and are designed to cover all the basics of being online including how to use the internet safely.
Council Leader, Councillor Ian Moran said “Covid has shown how really important it is for people to stay connected with their loved ones and be able to access services online. We want to help and support all our residents to be online and these courses are designed to go at the right pace whether you have a little bit of experience or are taking your first steps with digital technology.”
Residents who are interested in the free courses can text WEST LANCS and their name to 07825 844 417 or can call 01695 585216 (standard text and call charges apply).
