Katie Stockwin at Barclays said:

“The Digital Eagles programme is all about helping customers get the most out of being online, the benefits of being online and getting to grips with technology. We have had feedback from our customers and understand the challenges they face and this programme of sessions is a move forward to our commitment in making their lives easier online. We want everyone, regardless of age, to learn the value of being online whether that is staying in touch with family and friends or saving money.”
