The idea of the project is to encourage new and existing people involved with Cambridge Online to contribute to a collaborative community website which will develop into a collection of local memories for others to access. The project will help disabled and disadvantaged people become: More digitally included Skilled in computer literacy Able to use social media More Skilled for Life with resulting improved opportunities More confident and have better self-esteem Better grounded to enable progression to further learning Able to pass their skills onto others The main costs relate to staff costs, with a small amount for website hosting and recording equipment.
