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

Our digital inclusion program can help!

There will be four workshops held at both:

  • Bardon Neighbourhood Centre and,
  • New Farm Neighbourhood Centre.

to support people to learn the skills they need to access information online during a disaster.

 

Three circles connected by lines. There is a graphic in each circle, a computer screen, two speech bubbles and a smart phone.

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. Bring your phone, tablet or laptop with a full battery and any additional support you need!
