PLEASE CAN I ASK YOU TO READ THE FORWARDED MESSAGE BELOW AND HELP IF YOU CAN?
I work for the County Council and I am involved in a project that is looking to help members of the community who are digitally excluded (for example those who don’t have internet access or those who don’t know how to use the internet or a smart phone etc.)
Currently, we have a lot of information on our website and Facebook/Twitter pages. However, this fails to reach those who do not have access to the internet or don’t have the digital skills to use these sites. We would therefore like to reach these individuals by including information in local publications, newsletters posted through the door, advertisements etc.
We would like to collate a directory of local publications and wanted to ask for your help with this. Would you be able to provide a list of publications that you know of and include them in the attached spreadsheet along with the additional information requested in the spreadsheet?
Once we have collated the list, we would like to get in touch with the publications’ editors from time to time when we have information to advertise that we think would be useful to residents (for example details about accessing technology mentors).
The information you provide will be stored on our systems and we may also make it available to our external partners/colleagues. If you are providing information on behalf of a third party, please first gain permission from them that they are happy for their details to be stored by us and potentially other external partners (particularly if it is personal information such as a personal email address/phone number being used, where there is no corporate alternative email/phone number available). You can opt out at any time by emailing me and I will remove your details.
I would also like to make you aware of our Community Support Hub website, where individuals can find details of wider support that is available across Nottinghamshire: https://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/care/coronavirus/nottinghamshire-coronavirus-community-support-hub
Thank you for your time in reading this email and please get in touch if you have any queries or questions.
