This initiative works in partnership with local charities, such as, The Cedar Foundation, Action Mental Health, MS Society, Stepping Stones, NOW and Orchardville Society. A series of Internet taster sessions took place during the launch of Go ON NI in October/November 2011 and these will continue throughout the Go ON NI Programme. The sessions will train people with disabilities using specialist equipment and facilities provided by these charities in the use of the Internet and specific online services including the nidirect website. Disabled citizens will be given one-to-one tuition over the course of the sessions, which will be held across a range of suitable locations.
