North East – Adult Learning and Digital Skills


What can the project offer me or someone I am working with?

The North East Project works with adults over 16, resident in Aberdeen city and Aberdeenshire, who identify as disabled or a carer, to learn new skills such as literacy or digital skills. The project offers person centred informal and formal learning including SQA accredited courses. Among these are the Adult Achievement Award and The Community Action Leadership Award.
We have a great team of volunteers who can support learners one to one. We also offer support to small groups at local accessible community venues. Our services are free, person centred and confidential.

How do I refer myself, a family member or someone I am working with?

You can contact Barbara Taylor, our local Learning Coordinator, on mobile number 07768917248 or email with the contact details of the person you wish to refer. Alternatively you can get in touch by completing the contact form for the project.

How can I volunteer to support this project?

We are always looking for more volunteers to support our projects. We have a range of roles that can suit your available time and experience. We can provide training, out of pocket expenses and opportunities to our volunteers which are as fulfilling as they are rewarding. For more information please see our volunteering page.
