12 Sep Helping free@last to combat digital poverty
The Charity free@last has had a boost to its available hardware at its Community Centre in Nechells in the form of 4 new highly specified PCs from the Birmingham office of Urban Network.
The charity free@last has, since 1999, offered support to young people and the wider community of Nechells Birmingham. But their efforts to combat digital poverty encompass more than just handing out a computer!
“We’ve created a drop in hub where locals of all ages can get access to computers and receive help and training on usage from another of our strategic partners, Digital Innovators, a local company who have someone on site daily. The sessions are proving popular with attendees ranging from 12 -80 years of age, and Urban’s computers are a welcome contribution to what we can offer” said John Street from free@last
