All Aboard The Digibus
All Aboard The "Digibus"
Local Solutions joined up with Crosby Training - Enterprise Division as we all hopped on-board the new "Digibus" in Widnes, Halton:
The "Digibus" is a lorry which has been converted into a state of the art mobile meeting and IT venue which brings advice and guidance to central venues in the community to reach a wider audience.
The project has been designed through the Flexible Support Fund for the digital inclusion and up-skilling of Jobcentre Plus customers in the Halton area.
This will take a new and innovative approach to the challenges of helping JCP claimants into work via digital skills. It will support new Universal Credit claimants or those who are making the transition from other benefits to Universal Credit.
Local Solutions helped organise the event in the exhibitions space outside Widnes Market and Morrison's by liaising with the community champion at the Morrison's Widnes store and Robbie and the team at Savills Estates, Greenoaks Shopping Centre Widnes. Thanks for all your help!
Our Communications and HR Recruitment team were on hand on both days to provide advice and guidance to the first clients who came along. They also informed a number of Widnes residents about our various projects and to inform them of the large number of Care Support Worker jobs in the local area that Local Solutions has to offer.
