In North West Sutherland, BT, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, High Life Highland, and Citizens Online are working together to deliver the Get IT Together Programme, a community development approach to digital inclusion, helping people across the area to benefit from gaining on line skills.
Get IT Together – North West Sutherland recently supported Parents’ Night at Dornoch Primary School, offering a session demonstrating the wide range of resources there are available to help keep kids safe online.
During the session, they watched a ThinkUKnow YouTube film, which helps parents look at the issues their children might face and how to deal with them. The team discussed parental settings on various devices and how easy these are to use. Everyone had a look at the ThinkUKnow website, which offers plenty of interactive games and short films that parents, carers and kids can use together to open up discussions.

Get IT Together in North West Sutherland is supported by BT’s Connected Society programme, BT’s commitment to help people right around the world gain the skills and confidence they need to join the online community and Highlands and Islands Enterprise, and High Life Highland.
