North Bristol Advice Centre is a key partner in the award-winning Connect Lockleaze, a training project established to minimise digital exclusion and to encourage local people to develop their skills.
NBAC's Langley Centre is one of three local venues (together with The Cameron Centre and Boing!) that have been fitted with computers and now form a hub for a variety of IT-focused skills and training.
The project has been developed in partnership with Hewlett-Packard (HP) and the University of West of England (UWE), who sought out community partners with premises that could be developed into state of the art training suites. HP donated computers and UWE students volunteered their time at "open sessions" where they supported local people to get online.
