‘Get Blaenau Gwent Online’ is here to help Blaenau Gwent residents get online and get more out of new technology.
New technology skills are becoming as important as reading and writing, and those who do not have those skills are likely to become increasingly economically and socially disadvantaged. The ‘Digital Inclusion’ agenda is about improving people’s lives; helping people to communicate more easily, purchase goods for lower prices, and about being able to access public services more easily. Digital inclusion is also about reducing social isolation.
Staff and volunteers involved in ‘Get Blaenau Gwent Online’ will work with local groups and organisations to provide free computer sessions to people who want get online, learn how to use the web and realise its numerous benefits.
