Voluntary Action Wakefield District are providing IT support and we have training sessions with them at St George's Community Centre which is local. This has encouraged members to enrol for ICT training from St George's.

Aysgarth Community Association are members of Wakefield Tenants and Residents Federation, VOX and Voluntary Action Wakefield District. Funding training courses were provided by the Charities Information Bureau and that has been a great success. We thank them all for the invaluable help they have given us when we had no idea where to start.
