Digital Training

The ONSIDE project concluded at the end of November 2022.  However, you can still join one of our Drop-in Groups or use our online resources at the Community Hub and our ‘How to videos’ on the ONSIDE YouTube channel.

The impact of Digital Training 

“It just opens up new worlds for participants.”

Our digital trainers experienced the ONSIDE journey of each participant, from the initial trepidation and anxiety, to the ‘penny dropping’ moment right through to flourishing digital skills.

The ONSIDE digital skills training and support enriched the lives of participants. Post-project participants were able to independently take control of social connections online but also their personal business such as booking appointments, paying bills and filling out online applications. The online world became their oyster!


Digital training tutorials

We have a wealth of video tutorials recapping our weekly training for participants during their ONSIDE training. This is a small selection below. All tutorials are available on our YouTube channel:

Keeping our participants safe online was paramount. Every asset and function of the project was scrupulously checked and we educated our participants in online safety and security prior to introducing them to apps and/or websites that involved personal information or financial details.
