Keeping people inTouch

18th January 2017

We are extending our digital inclusion offer in Gateshead and County Durham in partnership with Gateshead Housing Company and Home Housing Group, in Derwentside. We have been offering basic inTouch iPad courses for tenants who want to learn how to use iPads to keep in touch online and we have now agreed to start teaching follow on courses to those who have already completed the basic training.

Project Coordinator Julie Nicholson said ‘We are thrilled to be able to work with these housing providers and the reaction from tenants is really enthusiastic. We even have a learner who is 96!
