Published by Roisin Rowley-Smith for Riverside in Communities and also in Education, Housing, Universal Credit
In a bid to get more people online Riverside is joining forces with Imagine If Trust to provide free access to computers in Wavertree, as well as help with job searches and CVs.
The digital hub, based at the Frontline Centre, is open every Thursday from 10am, specifically aimed at those who have never used a computer before and are keen to learn the basics.
Mark Browne is community engagement officer for Riverside in south Liverpool. Mark said: “We want to encourage people to come along and learn more about the basics of using a computer. There are many money saving offers online, as well as social benefits connecting with friends and relatives.”
Riverside staff will be on hand at the centre to offer support with using online forms, job searches, email and drafting CVs.
Mark added: “We are keen to reach out to people to gain online skills, especially before the introduction of universal credit, when most benefit applications may have to be done online.”
