Foundation offer people a chance to ‘Learn My Way’!
AFC Fylde Community Foundation, in partnership with the Good Things Foundation, are now able to support people across Lancashire in developing their digital skills.
Throughout lockdown and the Covid 19 pandemic, the charitable arm of AFC Fylde Football Club has been helping loved ones to stay connected online as well as improve their social lives, employment and career opportunities.
Coronavirus has shown that digital exclusion is a public emergency and the newly formed collaboration is working hard to combat that with the ‘Learn My Way’ programme.
The free online courses help people develop digital skills to better connect with the online world. The innovative programme is open to anybody in Lancashire who believes developing their computer and digital skills will improve their everyday life.
The Foundation has already enabled a substantial number of people to get set up and underway and aim to further support 150 people throughout the year to get online.
Community Development Manager at the Foundation, Matt Agnew understands the importance of the offer in the local community. He said: “We are living in a generation where it is crucial to have at least a basic understanding of digital skills and computers.
“We want everybody to have the best opportunities, so to be able to offer this programme free of charge to help people feel more comfortable and confident online, is great for the Foundation.
“We urge anybody who may be interested in the programme to get in touch. We would love to help!”
