Your Own Place has been chosen as one of only six organisations nationally to be a part of a digital skills accelerator programme. The award comes from the amazing Carnegie Trust UK.
This will involve workshops over the next six months in Manchester. We will start to scope out how we can bring digital skills development to our offer for young people.
Since setting Your Own Place up in 2013 we have seen a cohort of young people that are socially excluded (and financially excluded) as a result of digital exclusion.
We will be developing new tools, piloting them with groups of young people and then applying for the next round of funding from the Carnegie Trust to mainstream them in our provision.
