City of Joondalup residents 18 and over with a disability and seniors are particularly encouraged to apply for the free sessions.

Other residents can also apply for one of the limited free places or, for a small fee, take an Introduction to computers course.

Manager Carol Andrews said that ultimately the organisation wanted to provide further training to the disabled, so they could help run the internet caf�.

‘Those people identified will be offered further computer training including how to train others (plus) training in administration skills, food safety, simple food preparation and money handling,’ she said.

‘This could lead to paid employment for successful trainees.

‘It will certainly provide them with valuable computer skills for social and self development and fun.’

The internet caf�, funded by a Disability Services Commission ‘Count me in’ grant, runs through the City of Joondalup.

Hillarys Rotary Club also made a $500 donation.

Training is on Thursdays, 1.30pm to 3.30pm and Fridays, 1pm to 3pm, at 21F Endeavour Road, Hillarys.
