Village Web Company CIC is a social enterprise which builds websites, runs training courses and hosts activities that help develop digital skills and confidence.
Village Web Company was founded by Claire Worthington BSc, PG Dip and primarily works with small businesses and other organisations to help them make the most of the internet. Claire is a web developer, mentor and digital skills trainer from Stockport in Greater Manchester and has been working in digital since 2013.
In addition to web development and training, Village Web Company CIC provides employment opportunities, mentoring and work experience placements to encourage diversity in the tech industry.
Claire is passionate about digital exclusion, which is why she decided to enrol the Village Web Company as a member of the Online Centres Network in 2016, which offers free training to anybody wanting to learn how to use a computer or get online. In September 2021 she officially transformed Village Web Company into a social enterprise and incorporated as Village Web Company CIC.
