It’s that season again and just wanted to say a big thanks to all who have attended our sessions, helped out or spread the word.
Since setting up early in 2019, it has been the mission of Clear Community Web to help people with their computer troubles and questions, to help develop skills and help them feel safer to get more out of the digital world around us.
Underlying this, we are trying to help people make better decisions and not be excluded from changes in the way we access services, job opportunities and to combat against isolation.
To date over 32 different people have attended our now over-subscribed “Digital Skills for Seniors” class at the Upper Norwood Library Hub, we have conducted over 108 one 2 one sessions helping people with everything from technical and hardware issues to registering to vote. We put on 4 Tea and Tech events which had a mix of fixing, talks as well as a host of guests from Leonard Cheshire and Croydon BME Forum and we are now hosting a CoderDojo – lead by Simon Hammond; helping our younger residents learn about coding.
We ended the year by facilitating a Christmas video message project in partnership with Willow Learning for Life and Croydon Mencap which can be seen here
