Project updates

March 2024

Since the project began, the project has employed three trainers, developed and adapted a range of training materials and created distinctive branding for the delivery. Delivery itself began in Denbigh and Ruthin before Christmas and has now been expanded to include Rhyl, Prestatyn, Rhuddlan, St Asaph, Corwen and Llangollen.

To date the project has delivered to more than 70 different individuals, many of whom have returned for subsequent sessions. They have offered drop-ins, Essential Digital Skills, Shopping Safely Online, Getting Started with your Device, Digital Health and Wellbeing, and Spending and Saving Money online sessions. They have also recently started piloting a series of online and in-person sessions helping people to sign up to, and use, the new NHS digital app. The project has also worked with Working Denbighshire to offer digital support sessions at the same time as their community Jobcentre sessions.
