What does your organization do (100-word description)
Making IT Personal – Joining the DOTs (MITP:JtD) is a scheme funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the UK government and led by Barnsley MBC with partners across South Yorkshire. It aims to help local people use technology (such as mobile phones, cameras and computers) to make life a little bit easier. It recruits volunteers called DOTs (Digital Outreach Trainers) who spread their technology knowhow and share their skills with others who want to learn.
What digital skills training or activities do you or does your organization offer (if any)?
