New public learning center to promote digital literacy in Toryglen, Scotland

As part of the Click & Connect project, the Glasgow Housing Association (GHA) opened a new digital learning center in Toryglen, Scotland. The main purpose of this hub is to provide free internet access and digital literacy for the community in order to promote major inclusion within the region.

With the collaboration of Glasgow Kelvin College, this new digital learning center is the 35th facility promoted by the Click & Connect Program. The consolidation of these meeting points seeks to bridge the divide in terms of access to information and basic services.

The new center offers free Wi-Fi to local people and courses for a range of topics related to the use of technology for finances, advancing education and finding job opportunities. Other services include youth projects and volunteering programs. It is equipped with 12 computers and continuous technical support provided by Toryglen Community Base and the John Wheatley Learning Network.
