Wiltshire Online – Digital Inclusion

 

Wiltshire Council has made a commitment to help adults across Wiltshire get confident with the basics of computers and the web.  It doesn’t matter whether that’s a laptop, desktop, tablet or smart phone – we want to make sure that everyone who wants to take that step into the digital age can access the support they need to do so – for FREE.

The benefits

Being online isn’t a luxury – it’s a necessity. If you’re offline, you’re missing out on a wealth of benefits.  Shopping online can save you up to £560 per year, whilst around 92% of all job vacancies require applicants to have at least basic IT skills.

There are also benefits associated with health and well-being: email, Skype and Facebook are not only fantastic communication tools; they also play a vital role in reducing feelings of loneliness and isolation.  In short, having access to the internet is empowering, liberating and seriously good fun.
