How We Do It
We are good at providing sustainable, long-term classes, sessions and events. We have never had to close a class due to lack of funding. We have built up unrestricted funding so we can start a class immediately and keep it going until we find funding. We can also run pilot classes for and with partner organisations to test a demand or need.
Before lockdown all our classes were live held in care homes, day centres, libraries, community centres and housing schemes.
We immediately began putting classes online, completely changing our mode of delivery.
Many people joined our online classes who had never been able to get to live classes for a variety of health reasons. Our aim is to continue online classes and reach out to isolated people, offering our wide range of classes online as well as in face-to-face classes.
Digital inclusion classes have become an important part of helping people learn how join Zoom classes. We are doing everything we can to help people get online and run four Digital Help classes a week, two online and two face-to-face.
