Reach IT

The ReachIT Project is a digital inclusion project aiming to ensure that no-one in Lancashire gets left behind by the shift towards the need for digital skills. By providing targeted, personalised digital training we aim to improve employability, health & wellbeing, and provide the digital skills necessary to empower those in disadvantaged communities throughout Lancashire.

Participants will be equipped with improved digital skills leading to enhanced employability opportunities, better financial planning, reduced social isolation, as well as opening up access to online health services. The community will benefit from improved community cohesion (through re-engagement of socially excluded people), as well as support for local businesses and the economy.
