This six-month pilot project starts in January and runs to June.

As we have a small team – the initial phase of the project will be through direct referral from local voluntary and community organisations. So, if have someone in mind who you think would benefit from specialist advice and guidance from their very own Personal IT shopper to help them get connected and trained to use the Internet, please call 020 8255 8040 or email training@superhighways.org.uk to discuss.
