Computer Workshops with Lead the Way and Calderdale Libraries

Posted on

Lead the Way, in partnership with Calderdale Libraries, will be holding a FREE computer workshop on Thursday 19 July, 2:00-4:00pm at
Todmorden Library.

The workshop is for adults who have a learning disability, and their families and carers. People can come and go as they please, they do not need to stay for the whole session.

It will be a chance for people to have support with things like learning about Facebook, how to send an e-mail, how to keep safe on-line, how to look for things on the internet (surfing),how to fill in forms, how to look at videos and music….and lots more things. We will be holding the workshops across lots of different libraries around Calderdale so keep watching for dates and venues for a workshop near you!
