Stockport: A digitally inclusive borough
OEA are proud to support Stockport Council's aim to be a 100% digital borough by donating redundant PCs and monitors to Digiknow – a group of organisations promoting the importance of digital skills and helping more people in Stockport become confident, independent users of digital devices and the internet.
Digital Inclusion / COVID-19
Increased working, learning and interacting online during the pandemic has widened the gap for those who lack digital skills or access. Whilst libraries and places with public Wi-Fi were closed, Stockport Council continued to find ways to support the the local communities through a combination of projects including the establishment of the Digiknow Device Library.
If you or someone you know in Stockport needs help getting online for the first time, there are free to borrow devices and data, free telephone support from community Digital Champions and online group classes. Call the DigiKnow Helpline on 07537 127095 to find out more.
Community Computers maintain the DigiKnow Device Library with donated equipment. They also upgrade devices to sell at a lower cost to help people get online. You can drop off donations at any library in Stockport or arrange bigger collections for free by calling 0161 476 2777. All devices are securely wiped clean of your data.
