First Point Basingstoke’s Digital Inclusion Project is delivered in partnership with Basingstoke Area Strategic Partnership and Sentinel Housing Group. Digital Inclusion is about giving everybody the opportunity and ability to access communication and information technologies. Our aim is to undertake targeted, digitally focussed work with people, to give them skills and technological access needed to increase independence. Visits occur at an individuals’ home, with support ranging from weekly to fortnightly visits depending on needs for up to 6-8 sessions. People can be provided with a computer if they do not already have one and the worker teaches basic IT skills. The Digital Inclusion Support Worker will also link people to other digital hubs within the local community, so people know where to get further help when the support ends.
