bdht to host digital fayre at Bromsgrove Library

bdht is hosting a Digi-Fayre at Bromsgrove Library on Tuesday 8th August to offer free guidance and information to anyone who isn’t familiar with computers or the internet or would like advice and help to find employment.

Everyone is invited to gain confidence in accessing services online, improve their digital skills or seek information about employment at the event, which will run from 10am – 2pm at the Parkside venue.

For those who are familiar with the internet but may be worried about cyber security, the Digi-Fayre will also include two cyber-crime workshops, at 11am and 2pm, which will allow people to get a greater understanding of how to stay safe online.

Rachael Tooth, Driving Futures Officer at bdht, said: “We’re really pleased to launch our second Digi-Fayre. Some people have never used the internet and this means they aren’t getting the same opportunities to access services, gain employment or find important information as regular online users. It can be quite daunting if you haven’t used a computer or the internet before, but we’ve designed workshops that make it really easy to get online.

“We’re also working with some great partners at this event, such as Worcestershire County Council, Libraries and Learning and the Job Centre, who can talk to people about all of services that are available to them online. HoW College, Nova Training and Community Learning will be on hand to talk about the training courses they offer and how to apply, and ABI Ireland will be showing people how to renew or apply for a Blue Badge parking permit online.”

Everyone is invited to come along and see friendly faces from bdht and our partners, all offering a wealth of free information and advice.
