Sheffield residents are invited to build up online skills with Google as a digital tour makes a stop in Shiregreen.

Digital advice and guidance

Thanks to a partnership between Sheffield City Council and Sanctuary Housing, the Google Digital Garage Bus will be visiting Shiregreen on 20 and 21 November to provide free advice and guidance for local residents on digital services.

Staff from Sanctuary will also be on hand to promote the Sanctuary Online initiative. The programme, run in partnership with training provider We Are Digital, aims to equip Sanctuary residents with essential digital skills.

Sanctuary’s neighbourhood partnerships manager, Melanie King, said: “We are very excited to work with Sheffield City Council in welcoming the Google Digital Garage Bus to Shiregreen.

“There will be Google coaches on hand to provide free help and support with any issue, large or small. Come along and learn more about the internet in a supportive environment.”

Come along

The Google Digital Garage Bus will be at Hartley Brook shops, Shiregreen, on 20 and 21 November. Any resident who is interested in coming along and learning some digital skills can drop in either day between 9am and 3pm.
