Families with young children are being encouraged to get online, with the launch of weekly Best Start Digital Zones at Croydon central library from this Thursday (2 August).
Parents and carers will be able to drop in for one-to-one sessions taking place every Thursday from 10am-2pm throughout August at Croydon central library. The sessions will enable families to brush up on their computer skills before returning to work, learn more about and staying safe online, household budgeting, parenting support and health advice. The pilot will expand to another three libraries in September.
“Digital skills and internet access are important for families with young children, not only just to learn about new things but to keep their skills up-to-date for when they go back to the workforce. The council’s proud to offer free, parent-focused services such as this to ensure all are able to get online.”
Councillor Oliver Lewis, cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport
