Bridging the IT gap in the community - enabling local people to make a difference to their lives.
Our aim is to help more people benefit from getting online. In Solihull & Birmingham ReCOM is working to help individuals and community groups benefit by:- Running Tablet classes for the over 50s - Offering IT training to charities and community groups - Supporting people who are housebound to build skills and overcome isolation- Bringing people closer to employment.Why the community needs us
Being IT literate is essential to participate fully in today's society; nearly all jobs require some form of IT skill, more and more government services are offered on line, using the internet is now the norm for keeping in touch with people, low cost shopping etc. Yet many are still missing out; those most likely to be 'digitally excluded' are older people, manual workers, lower income households, and people with disabilities. We are dedicated to bridging this gap in our local community.Our impact on the community
We have volunteering opportunities in these areas:1) Tablet classes - assisting a professional IT trainers with helping older people 2) Helping job seekers develop their IT Skills
