New inTouch – by popular demand

29th September 2017

Digital Voice for Communities has extended our digital inclusion offer in Gateshead, Northumberland and County Durham, in partnership with Gateshead Housing Company, Bernicia Homes and Home Housing Group in Derwentside.

Tenants have enjoyed learning how to use iPads to keep in touch online, taking part in the basic inTouch courses that have been developed by Digital Voice. Their feedback was that they would like to carry on discovering the benefits of using tablets, and so DV has started teaching new follow-on inTouch 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!”
