Need to learn the skills to access information online during a disaster?

Our digital inclusion program can help!

There are four workshops that we run from Gailes Community House to support people to learn the skills they need to access information online during a disaster.

These workshops are for people with disability to:

  • learn essential digital skills,
  • get facts and information in times of emergency,
  • have access to essential goods, services and support like food, medicine, healthcare, support
  • stay connected to family, friends and workers.

Being online is really important during emergencies and disasters.

Workshop #1 - Getting to know your device - How do I use my device? What do I need to know?

Workshop #2 - Being online and staying informed - How do I access the internet and make a video call?

Workshop #3 - Accessing essential goods and services - How do I use social media, apps and online services?

Workshop #4  - Understanding data - What is data, how much does it cost and where do I start?
