Go Digital Newcastle

The CILIP Information Literacy Group (UK) is giving £6,000 to fund a scheme "bringing together public and commercial organisations, local charities and community groups to create a digital support network for residents and businesses in Newcastle upon Tyne... The Go Digital Newcastle: Connecting Our City project will work with government, local charities and community groups to allow digitally isolated residents to access online services and gain digital literacy skills... Go Digital Newcastle: Connecting Our City is the residents’ support element of Newcastle City Council’s wider Go Digital Newcastle initiative, and provides local opportunities for those who feel digitally excluded to develop, or improve, their digital literacy; enhance their employment prospects; demystify the online world; and understand digital citizenship. This project will support people to discover that the internet can be for them, and show them that a few basic digital skills such as sending an email or accessing a bus timetable can go a long way."
