AIS day hosted by AbilityNet

Deptford Digital Drop in – Bring your Device!

I’m keeping up with trying to have some ‘Digital drop ins’ to focus on the physically disabled and people 50+. The next run will be in Deptford Methodist Church on Creek road (map). I’m hoping to be able in managing 6 people for each event, although I forgot to add ‘Bring Your Own’ device to […]
