Weston Community I.T Group is based in a local authority community centre. The centre was earmarked for closure, but after Councillor Peter Jackson stepped in and challenged the closure he set up the Weston Community I.T Group. The group is for local residents to access the internet and receive training in basic I.T Skills. The group also provide gaming via several games consoles. The group is a voluntary not for profit organisation set up by the community for the community. All personnel working within the group do so on a voluntary basis. The purpose of the group is to promote community cohesion promote equality and provide basic I.T Skills. Residents can use the group as a learning platform or just a social gathering.
