The RSA Trust was pleased to be able to provide a grant to the organisation so that it was able to purchase and network two computers for its training arm. The objective was to help service users to learn Basic Literacy and Numeracy, as well as Information Technology. In addition, volunteers are able to use the equipment to gain transferable skills as they did operational duties within the organisation.
