Who we are

DECV Ltd exists to provide free public access to ICT resources in a safe, friendly, supportive, empathic, and non-intimidating environment to meet individual needs. The ultimate aim is to reach people from the community who for a variety of reasons such as lack of confidence, personal resources, or fear of technology, do not have the opportunity to participate in an increasingly IT focussed society. The group acknowledges that some people have rejected formal educational just as the education system rejects some of our community DECV Ltd therefore aim to advance education by a) allowing those people who would not otherwise access computer technology, the opportunity to have public access to IT equipment, which will give them access to information, internet and Email facilities. b) allowing people the freedom to learn in an informal environment to benefit from new technology using IT and ICT, ensuring that a greater number of local residents have the opportunity to learn an important key skill. c) providing a facility and expertise that the public can utilise to obtain IT support which would enable them to fully take advantage of new media technology as it develops in the future enhancing their skills further. Our ICT and Employability training programme and workshops are available on a daily basis; these range from basic unaccredited confidence building classes, providing useful practical skills, up to nationally recognised qualifications accredited by OCR.
