WCIT is backing a new project called Digital Pathways which will be run by the homelessness charity, Thames Reach.
It builds on the successful I-Reach project, a digital literacy project, also funded by WCIT and run by Thames Reach. I-Reach has already supported 54 people to access one-to-one support, and helped ten of those individuals to secure an IT qualification, as well as providing social media training and Wi-Fi access across seven Thames Reach properties.
Paul Finch, project leader at WCIT says: “What we are looking to achieve in the Digital Pathway project uses I-Reach sessions as an initial engagement to move service users into education and training, and then into employability services, with the ultimate aspiration to support service users into work, where possible in the IT sector.”
