Waterford Leads the Way in Closing the Digital Divide

Waterford Leads the Way in Closing the Digital Divide

During the early part of Covid 19, Waterford City and County Council, Waterford Libraries, Waterford Wexford Education Training Board, Waterford PPN, Waterford Area Partnership and the Waterford Older People’s Council, the HSE and the Disability Federation of Ireland worked together to find a solution to improve digital literacy in the community by training people in using their mobile phones, tablets and technology.

Waterford PPN carried out surveys to identify support and training needs. Two booklets have now been published online. This live publication “Get Connected: WIFI Hotspots and other Services” is available on Waterford Libraries website – www.waterfordlibraries.ie.

A booklet “A Beginners guide to staying digitally connected” was produced by Nicola McCarthy Hanlon of WWETB  – Click here download the booklet.
