Community Digital Hubs

If you are interested in volunteering with NKDC please see our volunteers webpage.

Here at North Kesteven District Council (NKDC), we recognise the fact that our residents are often being told ‘you can do that online’ but not everyone has access or skills to be able to do just that.

In Heckington, Osbournby, Ruskington, Sleaford and Waddington, NKDC run FREE weekly community digital hubs (with the valuable help of volunteers) that can help any resident get on line and guide them once they are there.

For more information on where and when the groups run, take a look below.

Where possible, it’s always more useful to bring along your own laptop, tablet or smartphone which you normally use to a group, though we do have a limited number of spare devices that can be used to give an idea of how different devices work.

There are many reasons why people have joined the group and here are just a few;

  • Apply for a job
  • Access Council services or complete an online form
  • Not used a device for some years
  • Learn how to use social media, particularly Facebook
  • Send emails
  • Complete beginner
  • Shop safely on line
  • Keep in touch with friends/family 

Each week, the group varies and is different as numbers of members and volunteer helpers vary but the aim is to give everyone a degree of one to one support each week; all you need to do is to tell us your priority and we’ll try to help.
