We encourage organisations in West Sussex to get in touch to join the free partnership and access:
- Digital devices and data for people in need
- Digital champion training for your staff and volunteers
- Online safety training
- Best practice and networking opportunities via quarterly partnership meetings
Digital Support Signposting Map
The West Sussex Digital Inclusion Signposting map shows all current support available for West Sussex residents. If you, or someone you know, would like to improve your digital skills, find free Wi-Fi locations, or would like support accessing free data or devices, then the map will help you find your best suited location.
- Pins in BLUE and have a book symbol are libraries that can provide support to any resident.
- Pins in RED and have a star symbol are organisations that can provide support to any resident.
- Pins in PURPLE and a circle symbol are organisations that can provide support to a specific group.
The map and directory are designed to signpost people to support in your local area. However, please check with the organisation to confirm the details of the support available as offers do change.
Do you offer digital support in West Sussex?
The map will be updated regularly, so please let us know if you have a support offer to add to the map. You can contact us at email@example.com
