Introduction

 

The Internet has transformed how we work, keep in touch, find information and spend our leisure time. Making better broadband available to people across Cumbria has real economic and social benefits.

 Our Digital Inclusion workshops are designed to help you learn how to get the best deals on superfast broadband and demonstrate the benefits and key features of the internet

 We want to help everyone gain the skills and confidence to use the internet to:

         Support Business & Economic Growth

o   Create new Business Models & Opportunities

o   Learn new Skills & Gain new Qualifications

o   Search for better (and better paid) Jobs

         Shop Better, Get better Deals & better Service

         Stay more in touch with family and friends

         Get support to be more independent for longer

o   Find out more about benefits, services and finance

         Use new Media and Content services

         Save Money

         Keep Safe On Line
