Local people in Alford who want some support to get online now can thanks to our donation of four laptops through our Dream Scheme initiative. The new digi-point was officially opened by the mayor of Alford, Sarah Devereux at an event on 10 March.
The laptops will be in the internet café at Alford Access Centre and will be available to use every Thursday as part of the centre’s drop in session from 10am until 1pm.
The drop in session is also attended by ELAP, (East Lindsey Advice Project) and Talk Eat Drink (TED) East Lindsey, a Big Lottery funded project, for older people, and our Tenancy Support Officer, Karen Morton who attends every other Thursday.
The internet café is run by volunteers of the Access Centre and will complement the services already available and provide residents the opportunity to access information, register on Homes Direct, and enjoy learning new IT skills in a relaxed environment. Getting online can help you to save money, apply for jobs, keep in touch with friends and family and find a new home.
You don’t need any experience so come along and have a go! If you would like to discuss the possibility of setting up a Digi-Lounge for your local community, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
