Our clients are not only excluded from society through poverty and disadvantage, but this is mirrored through their lack of access to web-based information and resources which increases their social isolation. The end goal is that 60 marginalised people will have learnt how to access email and the internet and will have used these skills to make a big difference to their health and social networks. Of these 20 people will go on to volunteering, training or employment. £390 will run this project for a week while £500 will buy a laptop.
