As the coronavirus lockdown prevented us from getting together in person, charities in Cornwall realised that not everyone has the same skills and confidence to work and socialise online.

They wanted to provide additional support for their members, and upskill staff to be able to provide that support.

The Inclusivity Project worked with the Disability Alliance, a network of local charities, and Cosmic, a social enterprise offering digital skills training and services, to co-design a programme of online workshops around the theme of digital inclusion.

Over the course of six weeks, the network of 8 local charities gained the skills and knowledge to support their members through the challenges of lockdown.

Fantastic session, thank you so much.

I’m thinking about how we can do things more efficiently and using the tools that are already out there.

I didn’t know how much there was already out there and accessible to us.

I’ve been on many, many courses over the last thirty years, but this has been the best.

I’ve been reading back through my notes all the time, and putting things into practice.

It’s been brilliant.
