The IT hub at the Cheese & Grain is a Centre Partner for UK-online. This means that people can drop into the hub and take advantage of the online courses provided. A tutor/mentor will help you with any of the courses or will teach you how to use a computer for finding work, filling in online forms, using emails or searching the Internet. If you have problems with reading and filling in forms we can help, so just come along and let us know what you need.

If you have no access to computers or the Internet at home then we can help. We run mixed job search and training sessions to help people with the IT skills needed for searching for work. On Mondays and Wednesdays the 'drop-in' sessions are there to help you with all aspects of IT and computers for everyday needs. We can also help with form filling, job applications, and with general reading and writing skills.
Sandy and Sue at BBC Somerset talking about Include Us In
Using a grant from Frome Town Council set up the delivery of IT and literacy at the Cheese & Grain hub. The team is there again on Mon and Wed to help people with form filling and reading and writing both on the screen and on paper. Many people who may be struggling with reading online and finding there is too much information can try entering details on paper first and then transfer to the screen.
The IT Hub has been been made possible by grants from: Frome Town Council and Frome Development Community Interest Company
Somerset Skills & Learning are offering 3 weeks digital skills courses starting January 2023.
