Two local charities have marked the achievements of learners who signed up to a computer course.
Derbyshire Housing Aid (DHA) and Erewash Mental Health Association have been running computer classes at the Touchwood Day Centre to teach people with mental illness basic ICT skills and how to use the internet.
The centre is a meeting point for around twenty service users, many having never used a computer before and having no access to the internet at home.
Kath Jackson, from DHA Training and Advice Centre, said: “More than 10 million adults across the UK have never used the internet, and worryingly four million of this group are also socially excluded.
“Being on-line can save you time and money and allow you to do things at the click of a button. Our friendly team can help you get started with computers.”
