As winter is drawing in, we wanted to introduce you to the team working hard behind the scenes at ClearCommunityWeb.
More importantly, we want to celebrate the work they do and their contribution to our community.
So first up is … SUE GAUGE
After 14 years in the Ministry of Justice, Sue initially joined ClearCommunityWeb as a volunteer; helping with the Digital Skills for Seniors classes at the Upper Norwood Library Hub.
She now leads our Digital Awareness for Older People program; a virtual class helping people to build confidence and encouraging them to ‘have a go’!
Under her stewardship the class has doubled in six months. We all learn new things and get a chance to ask the questions we can’t ask elsewhere.
“It’s really opened my eyes to how incredibly hard it is to use a smartphone if you’ve never used anything other than a landline. Most people take all this digital stuff for granted, yet to the people in our class it’s like a foreign language. It’s a pleasure to give them some idea about what it all means so they can be confident enough to give it a go.”
Sue is a real asset and a supportive help!
