Residents can gain confidence and improve their digital skills thanks to grants of up to £5,000.

Trafford Council has launched digital skills and inclusion grants, which can be applied for by voluntary groups to provide training and support, as well as the buying of new equipment.

The grants are there to improve the digital skills of residents for work and at home. By improving their abilities of going online and using computers, residents can stay connected, gain the confidence to go online and also stay safe.
