Get online, stay safe, and be in control with digital workshops on offer at Norfolk libraries
18 May 2023
A range of workshops to help people get online across Norfolk are continuing to take place across the county. The project, which is funded by Ofcom, aims to boost digital skills and confidence in accessing online service.
The project offers free drop-in sessions around three key themes: basic digital skills to enable you to get online; identifying scams and misinformation to stay safe; and being able to use the internet with confidence to keep you in control.
There is also the chance for people to receive one to one support to target training to their needs. These sessions are free of charge and there is no limit to the number of sessions you can attend.
Cllr Margaret Dewsbury, cabinet member for communities and partnerships, said: “We’ve been running these courses for a few months now and the feedback we’ve had has been positive. In an ever-increasing digital world, it’s really important that people feel able and confident to access online services, from banking and food shopping, through to identifying scams and understanding what information to trust, these free sessions across the county are a great way to boost your confidence.”
Sessions are being held at the following locations and times:
- Thetford Library on Thursdays between 10am and 12pm. One to one support can be booked by speaking with a staff member or calling 01842 752048
- Great Yarmouth Library on Tuesdays between 10am and 12pm. One to one support can be booked by speaking with a staff member or calling 01493 844551 or 01493 842279.
