Pensions Secretary Ian McCartney, speaking at the launch today of South Camden City Learning Centre, praised the centre for its plans to encourage older members of the community to make use of its ICT facilities.
The City Learning Centre provides South Camden Community School, other Camden schools and the local community with a state-of-the-art ICT resource.
