IT Self Service Project

Thank you to the Co-op Local Community Fund and it's generous members. They've helped raise £1838.97 and we'll now be able to offer the IT self-serve project at The Hub, twice weekly. There'll be a trained volunteer offering a 1:1 service, allowing some clients to access information or forms online, without the need for an appointment.
