Shropshire workshops tackle online privacy
People with learning difficulties are being encouraged to share internet safety skills in a new project launched in Shropshire.
The Act Smart scheme was the idea of 26-year-old Jamie Durrant who has Down's syndrome.
Three workshops around the county will equip about 90 people with basic skills to then pass on to friends.
Art Smart includes advice on sharing personal information as well as helping to protect people from online bullying.
Renee Wallace, from the community council, said: "Everybody really on Facebook ought to know what their privacy settings are, but specifically people that are a bit more vulnerable.
"The workshop is really good for people with different needs and disabilities," Mr Durrant added.
The training, run by Shropshire charity Taking Part, has been funded through a £1,000 Advocacy Sparks grant from Inclusion North.
People are also being encouraged to share internet skills as part of a BBC project called Give An Hour.
When the clocks go back this weekend, the BBC is challenging people to donate an hour of their time to introduce someone to the internet.
It follows on from the First Click campaign, which encouraged about 500,000 people to go online for the first time.
