Disability Wales Digital Lives Project
Are you a disabled person? Interested in getting online?
The current complex system of working-age benefits and Tax Credits is to be replaced by a new benefit called Universal Credit.
The process of moving existing claimants on to Universal Credit will be done gradually over the next few years. This will have a major impact for disabled people. Being online will not be an option as everyone will be expected to claim via the internet.
Disability Wales are running a Digital Lives project to support disabled people to develop internet skills and to get them prepared for Universal Credit.
Whether you want to know about the assistive technology that’s available, gain basic ICT skills, learn how to skype, advice on how to stay safe online…Disability Wales can help.
If your local disabled group would benefit from a digital inclusion session, tailored to your groups requirements, whether it’s an hour session at your monthly meeting – please get in touch with Tina Evans firstname.lastname@example.org or call 02920 887325
