Cohesive Society CIC Launches Free Digital Literacy Project for BAME Community Elders

Press Release






Northampton, UK - July 8, 2024 - Cohesive Society CIC is thrilled to announce the launch of a groundbreaking new project aimed at empowering diverse BAME (Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic) community elders through digital literacy. Starting from August 1, 2024, this initiative will be based at Room No. 8, Northampton Business Centre, Lower Harding Street, NN1 2JL, and is specifically designed for individuals aged 30 to 75 years.

Funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, this project offers comprehensive training on essential digital skills, helping participants navigate the modern tech world with confidence and independence. The classes will be held twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM, and are completely free of charge.

Project Highlights:

  • Computer Basics: Participants will learn how to use a computer, browse the internet, and manage basic digital tasks.

  • Email Setup and Management: Training on setting up email addresses, reading and writing emails, and using Google Translate for multilingual communication.

  • Healthcare Access: Guidance on booking hospital and GP appointments online.

  • Cultural Connection: Techniques to read vernacular newspapers, listen to music, and use YouTube.

  • Day-to-Day Digital Skills: Assistance with various online activities to support daily life and enhance overall digital fluency.

Why This Project Matters: The main objective of this initiative is to build stronger human resources within the community, reduce dependency on others, and help the elderly population manage their day-to-day activities in an increasingly digital world. By improving confidence, eradicating mental isolation, and empowering individuals to take control of their own affairs, Cohesive Society CIC aims to foster a more inclusive and supportive community.
