SOMDIS, IT on Bressingham
by Rob Smith

32 Grimesthorpe Road, in the heart of the Bressingham Estate, had once been a little shop but has now been taken on by a Somali-led initiative SOMDIS. This building now provides our community with free internet access, computer training classes, literacy learning and employment information.

Acting co-ordinator Mr Dualeh Nur, explains that the initiative is to make IT computer Technology more accessible for all people in the Bressingham Estate and surrounding community, not just Somalis.

SOMDIS, free community computer and Internet access is Open Mon to Sat from 9:30am to 3:30pm. For any further information on this service including course enrolment please contact Mr Nur on 278 7520 or 0790 425 6002.
