Tina Evans, from Disability Wales organised an afternoon in the Resource Centre in Baglan. We had the use of the big meeting room to learn more about the internet and how it can be useful, a source of pleasure, information, fun and communication. It made a nice change to meet in a place other than our usual location.
The Welsh Government is funding people like Tina to meet groups of disabled and older people to make sure that all those who want to be connect find it easy to do so. This is important as more and more things such as banking, benefits, social housing etc are managed on the internet now.
It certainly beats waiting around in busy banks and offices. I do a lot of shopping online now and it certainly saves whole afternoons of searching for items "not in stock" at smaller branches.
