Launch of our Local Community Digital Inclusions Sessions

16 Feb 17
Mount Anvil recently hosted a hugely successful digital inclusion session in Hammersmith. Delivered in collaboration with the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, these sessions are designed to help local residents feel confident and safe online.
Launch of our Local Community Digital Inclusions Sessions

These relaxed, informative sessions are free to attend for members of the local community. Our recent session was held at Queen Caroline Hall on Thursday 16th February, with practical support on the night being provided by members of the Queen's Wharf Project team and Mount Anvil IT staff.

Amek Ebele, IT Support Team Leader at Mount Anvil, led this online security-focused evening. Amek delivered a presentation on the importance of regularly updating anti-virus software, how to spot a scam email and best practices for safe internet use at home.

The presentation was followed by a question and answer session, allowing Amek and the team to offer individual advice on specific questions or problems. Mount Anvil staff then spent one-to-one time teaching members of the community to optimise and use security features on their own phones, laptops and tablets.

Jim Cunningham, Hammersmith and Fulham’s Service Transformation Officer for Housing, declared the session "a great success, with both existing and new learners sharing their thoughts and experiences around online safety". He also noted that Amek "led a great discussion and really responded to people's questions".

Digital inclusion sessions are to be held bi-monthly at Queen Caroline Hall. The council also plans to partner with other sector-leading organisations to roll the scheme out across the borough following the success of our pilot sessions.
