Waltham Forest Digital Month

Digital Month 2018 Connecting communities and unlocking opportunities

Digital Month 2018 is here!


It's Digital Month again and we are working with a range of partners and our local community to harness and develop digital resources, activities and tools to connect people together and unlock opportunities. 

We have an exciting range of free events on offer for residents and local businesses. There's lots of ways to get involved, including: 

  • IT sessions to learn the basics of using the internet or computers
  • Tech Camps
  • Hackathons
  • and Instagram competitions.
