We are supporting Magna Vitae as part of their TED delivery contract. We attend one of their sessions at each venue to demonstrate the use of Health Apps, websites and Amazon Echo devices to raise awareness of the importance of online access.
East Lincs District Council
We are working with East Lindsey District Council to support residents out in the Community to access the online housing register.
We work with Lincs Training on some projects where bespoke training is required for a small business or individuals which falls outside of our Charity work.
During Get On Line Week or promotional events we often work together to promote Digital Learning.
A1 Community Works
We have an excellent working relationship with Tanya and Karon from A1 Community Works based in North Allerton, North Yorkshire. They work on similar rural projects and we can share ideas to improve the service for both areas.
Age Friendly Business
We promote the Age Friendly Business award during our community sessions to make residents aware of the project and how those businesses will help older people.
Victoria Atkins MP
We have done some work to support some projects for Victoria Atkins MP for Louth and Horncastle. This included providing support to Spilsby residents during the recent closure of Lloyds Bank. We provided sessions at the Bank to assist customers to register and use online banking.
We also support residents across East Lindsey and help to promote the need for better broadband facilities across the area.
Centre for Ageing Better
We continue to support the Centre for Ageing Better and our sessions for older people are designed around their recommendations. Many of our learners were also interviewed for research projects in conjunction with Good Things Foundation and Lincs Training. The full reports can be found:
