St Albans are working in partnership with SCIPS on an innovative new project that is aimed at getting more people digitally connected. This project is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund. There are three different strands to this project.

Picture This

This project is for adults aged 55+ who live in Sandwell. We are offering to lend you an internet ready tablet and provide one-to-one lessons in your own home. If you already have a computer or other internet ready device, we can also provide sessions for you using these. These sessions are based on an individual plan for what the client wishes to learn. This could range from online shopping to playing games, Skyping and much more.

"We are delighted to receive funding from The National Lottery Community Fund and work in partnership with SCIPS to deliver a project which will help members of our local community become more digitally included and have access to online shopping, banking and social media." Tonia Flannagan - CEO, St Albans
