​Mansfield Residents Helped To Get Online Thanks To Local Digital Champion

Mansfield Residents Helped To Get Online Thanks To Local Digital Champion

Two new classes to help residents develop their computer and internet skills have been launched in Mansfield, thanks to Nottinghamshire Digital Champion, Milly Alonso.

The weekly sessions are being held every Wednesday at the community centres of two of Mansfield’s District Council’s sheltered housing schemes; Sherwood Court and the Flint Avenue Centre and will cover a variety of digital topics.

Despite today’s digitally-driven times, millions of adults across the UK have never used the internet, especially those aged over 55 years. In Nottinghamshire alone, 148,000 people have never or rarely used the internet. By not being online people are missing out on significant individual, social, economic and health related benefits such as saving money, being in touch with friends and family and feeling part of modern society.

Milly said, “The internet can open up a whole new world for people and can make a massive difference to reducing social isolation and loneliness. We are really keen to help our elderly residents with being online so they can be more empowered and better in touch with friends and family.”
