Getting started with digital devices is a guide created by Knowledge Pool to support the digitally excluded people in the Doncaster area to carry out basic tasks on digital devices. We are aware of the effect of social exclusion and the toll this will have on people with little or no digital skills during this lockdown. Hence we created this guide with the support of the Doncaster Community COVID-19 Fighting Back Fund
To introduce this guide to our target audience we are having a digital launch.
