AN EDUCATION project which helped South Yorkshire folk access the internet has won an award.

Making IT Personal: Joining the DOTs, led by Barnsley Council and supported by Sheffield College, saw residents discover the benefits of going online and tackled ‘digital exclusion’.

It won a top plaudit in the Local Government Yorkshire and Humber’s Making A Difference awards.

Councils in Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster also supported the scheme.
