Free work and benefits computer help sessions in Derbyshire

Help for residents wanting to go online to find out about jobs and benefits is available through a Derbyshire County Council scheme.

The sessions are a response to increasing numbers of people coming into Derbyshire libraries seeking assistance on these topics.

Libraries in Chesterfield, Staveley and Bolsover are among those offering the free sessions.

Coun Ellie Wilcox, council deputy cabinet member for health and communities said: “These sessions will help people who don’t have much experience or confidence in using a computer to find out about jobs and benefits.”

Chesterfield Library is also hosting regular employability workshops, every Friday between 9.30am and 12.30pm.
