In 2016 The Grange received funding from the Karten Foundation to create a brand new state-of-the-art IT suite.
The Karten Ctech Centre is now a hive of activity with people using it to pursue their own projects – such as digital photography – to The Grange 4 U Newsletter Group who produce a quarterly magazine for The Grange. There are also courses such as ‘how to stay safe online’ and ‘how to use social media’, etc
There are six stations, each with easy-to-adjust table height and there is room for a support worker to sit at the desk and help the person with their project.
People can follow the IT tutor on the interative whiteboard.
The Karten Ctech Centre also now boasts a 3D printer which has been used to produce all kinds of plastic shapes from Star Wars characters to a model of the Leaning Tower of Pisa!
