Internet lessons for over-65s

Computer-wary older people are being taught how to use the internet at the library.

Westminster Council launched Senior's Online project at Maida Vale Library, in Maida Vale, on Friday and have helped about 35 older people get online for the first time.

The aim is to get 100 over 65s in the borough internet trained by March 2009.

Adoption service rated 'good'

Brent Council's adoption service has been given a 'good' overall rating and praised for its inclusive approach which 'welcomes people from all sectors of the community'.

The service received an 'outstanding' rating for its exceptionally high provision for helping children to achieve well and enjoy what they do - one of four key areas that were scrutinised during the inspection in March.

Chance to get community funds

Community groups can meet potential backers at a funders' fair.

The umbrella organisation for the voluntary sector in Brent, BrAVA, is holding the event, in its sixth year, at Willesden Green Library Centre, in High Road, Willesden on July 3.

Individual advice surgeries and presentations from funders will also be held.

The booking deadline for one-to-one surgeries is June 13.
