‘Time to get online’ offers a training programme though a believe housing, Dale & Valley Homes, Durham City Homes, East Durham Homes and Teesdale Housing Association partnership, and aims to raise awareness of the benefits of digital technology and show people that the internet is not as daunting as it may appear.

 

The next interactive session, on Wednesday, 18 November between 10am and 2pm at Wheatbottom Community Centre in Crook, will team attendees up with a designated ‘Digital Champion’, who will highlight the basics of the online world in an informal setting.
