A £10,000 grant will be spent on touch screen computers to help a Kidderminster day centre teach disabled adults how to stay safe online.

The Odell Centre secured the National Lottery funding to deliver regular e-safety training sessions to its 84 members, all of whom have learning disabilities or mental health issues.

Centre manager Craig Darby said: "For some time now, the centre has been concerned about the safety of its members - all of whom are vulnerable adults - when using computers, as many have over a period of time become a little more proficient in both their online use and use of social media profiles.

“We hold regular meetings with our members and one of the things that members have highlighted a lot in these meetings is about being safe when using the computer.

"So we took on board what they said to us and decided to apply for funding that would help to address this issue."

The Odell Centre, in Plimsoll Street, was established in 1984 in memory of Eric O'Dell, who felt strongly that there should be a sheltered workshop in Kidderminster for people with learning difficulties like his son.

Adults at the day centre take part in social, recreational and leisure activities at the centre itself and within the local community.
