The DigiBus heads for the Forest

Free digital skills training will be on offer at locations across the Forest of Dean over the next month.

The DigiBus is an accessible converted double-decker bus packed with digital technology, which travels around the county visiting community venues and town centres.

An onboard trainer and digital champion volunteers will provide personalised one to one sessions for beginners. Learners can ask questions and will be supported to explore the things that matter to them. No question is too small!

Partner organisations will run workshops in basic computer skills, coding, digital art and more.
