Last updated 23rd July 2021.

As part of our Cyber Resilience and Accessible Formats project, we’re offering FREE webinars for members of the public and training for practitioners/organisations that support others.

The webinars will be especially useful for disabled people or those who might find it harder to use the internet safely, but they are open and suitable for everyone. They will also be handy for you if who care for someone who needs some extra support using their digital device safely. All classes are free and open to the public.

The Training for Trainers sessions are for practitioners, volunteers or others who support people with low digital confidence.

We may be recording some sessions to share with attendees where this has been stated as an access requirement. Recordings won’t be available publicly.
