The aim of these events is to get a better understanding from residents on how the council can improve its website, to explore some of the barriers facing residents when accessing services online and to look for ideas on how the council can improve its services digitally.
In the coming weeks the council is hosting events at the libraries in Redcar, Ormesby, South Bank, Guisborough, Loftus and Dormanstown, and wants to gain a better understanding of the types of barriers that residents face when they go online.
The council plans to use the responses to improve Council services and digital access for everyone in the borough.
