GET ONLINE GREATER MANCHESTER

Greater Manchester Combined Authority has launched ‘Get Online Greater Manchester: for disabled people’, a comprehensive guide that signposts people with disabilities, and those supporting them, to organisations that can help overcome digital barriers and help people benefit from opportunities in the digital world. The booklet, which is available in various accessible formats, brings together information on assistive technology; digital skills and skills courses; broadband and mobile connectivity; and advice about staying safe online.

The guide has been developed with input from partners and organisations of Greater Manchester’s Disabled People Panel. They advised that many disabled people and care professionals are unaware of where to access digital support, such as assistive technology, digital skills and getting online, and that more guidance was needed to help disabled people understand and utilise the range of technology available.
