ConnectUp 01 Jun 2017
ConnectUp will provide a 2 hour weekly drop in session at each of our three Housing Associations. These sessions will be lead by a Digital Inclusion worker and will involve both one-to-one and small group provision. The aim of these sessions is to support residents to gain basic digital skills at their own pace following an identification of need (through existing referral mechanisms), or on a drop in basis (self-referral or signposting). The Williamsburgh and Linstone ConnectUp sessions will be promoted as digital employability sessions, to provide participants with basic digital skills required to fulfil claimant commitments required of jobseekers such as Government Gateway accounts, Universal Job Match, CVs and cover letters, email accounts and website jobsearch, universal credit applications and meet the requirement of supporting working age people to increase financial capability, employment and other economic outcomes. In addition participants will gain the skills required to complete their online Universal Credit applications. The ConnectUp provision at Bridgewater will be promoted as a history of Erskine workshop where older people will be supported to gain the skills required to enable them to look research prose and pictures online, providing participants with basic digital skills such as websearch and use of social media. Sessions will develop organically in response to the needs and interests of participants and would meet the requirement for supporting older and disabled people to reduce social isolation and loneliness.
Moving Online 01 Jun 2017
A recent Moving On Inverclyde service users' consultation identified a gap in provision around IT skills training.

Access Technology Scotland will deliver two hour weekly learning sessions; one 1 hour group session followed by 1 hour one-to-one support, with access to free equipment to aid the learning process.
DabbleGen 01 Jun 2017
This project will build on our award-winning DigiDabble initiative targeting families to promote attitudinal and behavioural change, and develop the audience for digital participation among children and older learners. The initiative will: * support older library learners to develop digital skills * effect attitudinal change towards people as their mental acuity changes and requires a different approach, and challenges library services to be delivered to meet entirely different needs. This project will bring together library resources and older and younger people, offering a range of digital activities to stimulate the mind. Participants will be invited to take part in a minimum of 4 workshops and will be introduced to a range of technology – tablets, laptops and digital equipment such as robotics and Osmos. A selection of apps will be used to introduce participants to the technology, for example Darts, Solitaire, Snakes and Ladders, Monopoly and Scrabble. Participants can instantly connect with these activities and this will help to get over their fear of using the technology. Through discussions with participants they will progress to learning how to download/access content of their choice. We will also work with staff in sheltered housing units, day services units (dementia services and support for the frail and elderly) to enable them to continue to support people to develop digital skills, helping to ensure sustainability.
Connecting Care-Centred Communities 01 Jun 2017
The project will increase the digital skills of older people in West Dunbartonshire, focussing on those who live in a supported homely-setting ie sheltered housing and care home facilities. It will engage multi-generational volunteers from within the community to help support residents to gain the digital skills they need to keep their hobbies, interests, friendships and family relationships at a level which helps promote their positive wellbeing. Weekly digital skills sessions will be held, in group and 1-2-1 formats using tablets, linking residents with a community volunteer who shares an interest or who has a connection with the residents former home area/work experience. Residents will choose from a list of options that would most improve their quality of life eg. using search engines for hobbying, engaging with facebook and other ‘chat’ options, using Skype/Facetime and other connecting options to maintain contact with friends and family.
Building Equality 'Digi, Aye!' 01 Jun 2017
Building Equality (BE) is a new project within WASLER, exploring the relationship between employment, gender and domestic abuse. Its aim for service users is: women have increased financial independence via access to economic resources, education, paid labour market and routes out of poverty. BE 'Digi, Aye!' project will be based around a women's only job club. Weekly drop-in (9am-5pm) session where women can meet in a safe, non-judgemental learning environment and be supported to explore options and address barriers to work. This will be a one-stop shop for budgeting support, universal credit applications, universal job match demands, CV updates, job search and applications etc. When not being utilised as a job club - the space will be available for all service users to utilise internet/applications etc. with the support of their worker. Group participation will be set up for 10 - ten laptops and 2 tablets - though given drop in nature of the club we would anticipate pockets of smaller groups throughout the day.
