Welcome to the latest and refreshed look edition of the Due East Neighbourhood Newsletter
The newsletter this time is focusing on Autumn activities and how these fun times can be used to help support local people in these trying times.
But more importantly the newsletter is to celebrate the fantastic work of local people in seeing each other through this nightmare that we have been plunged into.
We hope you will find interesting information about where you or someone you know might go to find the help that makes a difference.
West Sussex County Council, in partnership with Get Safe Online, is starting a search for volunteers to become part of a new group of ‘Digital Ambassadors’.
Once accepted on to the scheme, these Ambassadors will receive a series of specially tailored training sessions, delivered by experts from Get Safe Online, to help them educate and support their local communities to become safer online.
This could include one-to-one advice sessions, giving out leaflets or even hosting a webinar where the volunteer could share tips on how people can use the internet safely.
