WE HAVE LAUNCHED!!
Go ON Chorley, in partnership with Lancashire County Council, Chorley Borough Council, NHS England and a host of local voluntary sector organisations, launched a new and exciting digital skills programme across the borough during March 2017.
Through our team of delivery partners we held many awareness sessions at libraries and other community settings. The response was fantastic and we saw 24 people sign up to volunteer as digital trainers, 16 people sign up as volunteers for the Go ON project and 70 people sign up for basic and intermediate digital skills training.
THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE WHO WERE INVOLVED IN MAKING THE LAUNCH SUCH A GREAT SUCCESS.
The Lloyds Consumer Digital Index, which was launched in January 2016, found that the average UK consumer who is online saves £744 per year, thanks to the internet. With an estimated 25,000 residents in Chorley not making the most of the internet, people are missing out on savings of more than £18.6 million every year.
Go ON Chorley aims to help the Borough’s community, residents, public, business and voluntary sector organisations, realise the true benefits of being able to get online.
We will support our community to learn how they can use digital skills to save time and money, effective use of social networks and media marketing, job search, stay in touch with friends and family and access important health and public sector services.
Our principle aim is to provide a support forum for individuals and organisations already engaged (or planning to engage) in digital inclusion activities. By creating a steering team partnership we are now working collaboratively to deliver for Chorley.
