Making technology easier

There are 8.7 million people in the UK who have never been online.  The DO I.T. Project has been set up to help local people access free digital training and to get the extra support they need to meet the demands of this digital age.

The DO I.T. Project aims to help people learn how to get the best out of modern technology, build confidence and make technology help them in their everyday lives.  Training could give people the confidence and skills they need to use technologies including mobile phones, digital cameras, computers and the internet.

To date it has assisted over 1,000 individuals to either get online or improve their
digital skills. It offers drop in sessions, 1-to-1 sessions and CV workshops, which aim to meet the wide ranging needs of individuals.

DO IT Project groups have become a small community of their own, using Skype and email to help extend the ways of communicating with each other. Subsequently, the project has also helped to combat social exclusion, particularly in sheltered homes.

The project provides computer support on:

  • Emails
  • Searching the internet
  • Skype
  • Online Shopping
  • Online Budgeting
  • Online Safety
  • Best value advice
  • Problem solving
  • Computer hardware advice
  • CV writing

The DO I.T. Project holds free sessions in various day centres and libraries and sheltered homes around RCT on a weekly basis.  Also, it is now based in The Exchange @ Penygraig, which is our new drop-in centre for the Do IT Project and other services including our money savers, energy saving advice.

The DO I.T. Project is available to everyone.
