Welcome to Lincs Digital

Lincs Digital are a local charity based from Horncastle in the East Lindsey District of Lincolnshire. We are proud to provide Community Based Learning at local venues with sessions developed to meet individual needs. Community Learning Sessions can be designed as one-off standalone courses or as part of a multi-session package. We provide all equipment needed for the session which can include laptops, iPads, tablets, projector and screen, PA system and digital camera. Learner handouts and resources are also available if required depending on the course content.

We are also able to offer a variety of online course which we then support via phone, email or video calling.
Working with a variety of projects including The Prince’s Countryside Fund, People’s Health Lottery, Online Centres Network, Good Things Foundation, TED and The National Lottery Community Fund allows us to deliver a wide range of content. Please see our Project page for more details.

“To develop the capacity and Digital skills of the local communities of Lincolnshire in such a way that they are better able to identify, and help meet, their needs and to participate more fully in society”
“To advance the education of the residents of Lincolnshire in Essential Digital Skills by providing classes, hands on training, workshops and drop-in sessions at local community venues”.
