Digital inclusion and the ability to connect with others online is an issue for many sectors of society. COVID-19 has brought this into sharp focus. BME/BAME Communities, who are under particular and well-documented pressures, are made doubly vulnerable by digital isolation.
The National Lottery Community Fund has provided funding to make it possible for North Somerset BME network to offer a range of digital training courses to help local BME/BAME groups continue to provide essential support to their communities. Training opportunities will include website building, Zoom, social media and mailing list management.
