Guide 2: How to set up an Online Cooking Club

Through conversations with our partners across the UK, it’s evident there’s a huge appetite for supporting people in the local community remotely. We’ve heard amazing stories about how staff at community organisations and libraries have been finding ways to substitute the face-to-face support that is valued by so many of the people they regularly help.

That’s why we’re working with various partners to create a series of easy-to-follow guides for delivering digital skills support remotely. Each guide will include a bit of background information, and a few simple steps you can follow to give it a try.

This guide, the second in a series, comes from Stephanie Lees-Pinson, Training and Employment Lead, and Elizabeth Tonks-Leeke, Digital Inclusion Mentor, at The Intact Centre in Preston. The team found a creative way to keep their popular ‘Thrifty Kitchen’ cooking club running in the virtual world.
