Free training is on offer in Sheffield for people wanting to get to grips with using the internet.
The Tinder Foundation, a charity based in Sheffield, is running the beginners’ scheme as part of the Government’s Future Digital Inclusion initiative,
The project is being support by Rural Action Yorkshire. James Russell, digital inclusion officer at Rural Action Yorkshire, said: “There is an increasing need for people to get online, whether to keep in touch with friends and family, to access public services, or for work.
“This need is especially pressing in rural areas, where farmers will soon be expected to carry out all their admin online, and where geographical isolation can make being connected online even more important.”
Anyone wishing to access the training is encouraged to call 0845 313 0270.
