“The concept behind ‘Let’s Get Digital’ is to be informative and educational while having fun” explained Heeley Online Centre Manager Maxine Bowler.  “Banking, shopping and communication are increasingly taking place online, and with welfare, advice services and job searching all going digital there’s a real threat of exclusion for the more vulnerable members of the community”.

We are expecting another high turnout so if you fancy having a go why not come down.”

There will be stalls at the event showcasing various online services and online experts will be on hand to provide individual support. There will also be information about welfare benefits, money advice, getting a job and a competition where a tablet (donated by Currys) will be up for grabs.
