Coming Soon - Digital Trainingin Community by Tina Hartley
Meet and Eat: Garve & District DigiHub
Ok, you might be asking yourself what on earth is a DigiHub, well you are looking at it! It's this great on-line digital community that is currently being developed. Successful applications have been made to the Digital Participation Fund and to Lochluichart Community Trust to bring together younger and older members of our community to share their knowledge and skills.
The applications were made in response to the Community Survey of 2016 and recent discussions with local residents and will:-
- Provide some fun, interactive, training sessions where young people are encouraged to help us design and facilitate them.
- Transport will be provided for those who need it.
- We are going to have a relaxed atmosphere, food and drink for those who attend and a chance to chat, meet old friends and make new ones.
- For those who sign up, one to one sessions will be arranged to kick start the process so we can have a chat about what current skills you have and what digital technology you use e.g. phone, tablet, laptop or none.
The project will also give us the opportunity to put resources back into our own community by using a local community venue, a local caterer and a relatively local transport provider. The other great thing to shout about is, we have funds to employ a couple of people - Project Facilitator and Keyworker, so keep an eye open for a Current Vacancies Post!
Sharon Wright, Chair of LCT said "congratulations to the Development Company on receiving their grant funding, LCT looks forward to working with them to bring the community together".
