RESIDENTS who want to learn more digital skills are being invited to a new project.

The Digital Buddies project is being launched by Maldon and District CVS and the Moat Foundation to support people to boost their digital skills.

The project will start on Tuesday 16 at 2pm with a special drop-in event being held at the Moat Foundation’s community hub in Fullbridge.

Through a mixture of drop-in sessions and community-based support, residents will be helped to learn relevant IT skills at a pace that suits them.

The project is part of the Online Centres Network, which gives learners the chance to make use of a range of online courses through the Learn my Way website.

People who are confident in their digital skills can also use the website to complete tutor training for free, to help people in their community or to volunteer with one of the project’s formal drop-in sessions.

Anyone interested in learning more about the project is welcome to attend.
