Digital Access Project
The Digital Access Project enables access to the internet to help individuals, groups and communities (e.g. supporting local computer clubs) fully exercise their rights and responsibilities.
If you want to “get online” but aren’t sure where to start, the Digital Access Workers can help you get free digital skills lessons.
If you have a more specific problem, where there’s something (like Universal Credit or managing your bank account online) that you want to do online but can’t, we can also help you with this. No problem is too small.
Some examples of things we frequently help people with include but are not limited to:
- Staying in touch with friends and family
- Reading books, watching movies or listening to music online
- Managing your bank account online
- Shopping for food online
- Using computers when you have a disability
- Connecting communities with other digital access tools, services and providers
The Digital Access Project also provides research and training for advisers both in and out of the Bureau to help them understand the digital aspects of subjects (e.g. Debt, Benefits, Health etc.) so that they can provide even better advice to people that visit the bureau.
