Pride in Bridlington from the Community Resource Centre


Go ON – Get More Out of Life Online

Posted on January 12, 2011 by jdobson

It’s the start of a brand new year here at the Bridlington Resource Centre, which therefore means new and exciting events and goings on.

 There’s a new national campaign all about helping people to face their fears and get online. The Go ON – get more out of life online campaign runs from the 17th of January up until the 14th of February and aims to inspire people to make going online their new year’s resolution! The UK Online centre here has events and sessions running the whole way through.

We want to give people a chance find out how the internet could help them in everyday life – from getting on at work to keeping in touch with family and friends, exploring interests to saving time and money and there is a session made for everybody!

Being online can make a huge difference to your life. Everyone can learn, no matter what your background, age or experience.

Six reasons to get online:

  1. Save money – An estimated £560 can be pocketed over a year by paying bills and shopping online.
  2. Save time – Many tasks are quicker and easier online – getting a tax disc, online banking, paying bills, and getting the groceries!
  3. Stay in touch – The internet provides free and easy ways to keep in touch with friends and family… no matter how far away they are.
  4. Find jobs – 90% of all new jobs now require IT skills, and many are now advertised and applied for online. If you have computer skills you’re more likely to find a job… and you could earn 3%-10% more too!
  5. Stay up-to-date – The internet can be an instant source of news and information. You’ll find the latest TV listings, weather reports, and sports results from anywhere in the world.
  6. Enjoy hobbies and interests – Whatever you’re interested in, there’s a website out there for you.
