Free Internet Training & Grants for Community Projects

TWO OFFERS FROM FASTERSHIRE

Free ‘Introduction to the Internet’  Workshops   ** We’ll come to your town or village **

 Learn how to send emails, stay safe online, search for information, shop and pay bills online

 Do you know of people in your community – or a group or club – who would like to learn more about using the internet and the benefits of going online?

Would they like to ‘have a go’ at using computers and the internet, with support from a friendly tutor?

We can arrange a course of up to 5 free ‘Introduction to the Internet’ workshops for beginners at a venue in your area that has internet access covering topics such as staying safe online, using Facebook, searching for information, setting-up an email account, shopping online, researching family history – anything your community might find useful.

Or we could run a one-off workshop on any of these topics, maybe to help you promote your community website or Facebook page.

The tutor will bring the computers.

To find out more or to have a chat about what’s available please telephone Jennie Morgan on 01432 260 691
