Superfast Cornwall is committed to making sure that absolutely everybody in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly gets the chance to benefit from the internet. People of every age and background stand to benefit from the huge opportunities opened up by the internet and superfast broadband.
Having access to the internet can have many, many benefits - everything from finding the cheapest car insurance to ordering your prescriptions online; from submitting job applications to keeping in touch with friends and relations.
Superfast Cornwall is working with BT's Digital Inclusion programme, Get IT Together, and the UK charity Citizens Online to help make this happen. We will work with communities and local partners to provide free or low cost computer training for computer novices. We are also developing a network of volunteers to support community learning, and we will look for new, innovative ways to help support those people who are the hardest to reach.
Why not watch our short video about the class we ran in Leedstown here. You can also read the inspirational stories of local people who have already embraced a new world of possibilities through attending computer skills courses.
If you're reading this you probably already have the computer skills that you need, but if you know somebody who would like to start thinking about using the internet please let us know. Alternatively, if you or somebody you know would like to become a volunteer we'd love to hear from you - please email us at email@example.com.
