The GET NPT Online initiative hosted an event at Neath YMCA on the evening of Thursday 18th May to thank volunteers.
Nine Police Cadets from Neath Group were presented with
Event Volunteering certificates for getting involved with
supporting Melincryddan Community Conference Volunteer
Co-ordinators Stuart Morgan, Fiona Davies and Nigel Lewis, who
are part of the GET NPT Online initiative of supporting people to
gain IT skills to get online.
The police cadets worked with a group of retired residents from
a local community in Crynant at the Crynant Community Centre to
successfully get online.
The certificate was developed as part of the Volunteering
Spirit Wales project to recognise volunteers at events.
Volunteers were delighted to receive their certificates and get
recognition for their contributions. Many of the volunteers were
young people, who were excited by the idea of using these to
contribute to Millennium Volunteers hours; this encouraged them to
get involved in further volunteering opportunities.
Communities Wales trained the young people as Digital Heroes
ahead of the event at Crynant Community Centre, equipping them with
the skills to support people to get online.
