Despite the wide popularity of the internet and ‘smart devices’, the thought of getting online can seem daunting - but it doesn’t have to be!

Our trained team are here to help you if would like to learn the basics of your new gadget (phone, PC, laptop, tablet), how to shop online, how to set up an email account or even how to download your favourite games. We run one-to-one gadget support or drop-in sessions to help you enhance your skills and unlock your digital potential.

  • One-to-one Gadget Clinics

    The sessions will take place on Tuesdays at our Henderson Court Hub and on Wednesday at Primrose Hill Library and will be a dedicated time to learn or enhance your digital skills, supported by a volunteer tutor. These sessions provide the perfect opportunity to help you learn about your new gadget or how to get online. Sign-up to a Gadget Clinic today!

  • Tech Loan Scheme

    We are now offering a FREE 'try before you buy' service, where by you can loan a tablet, e-reader and internet access for three months and test it before before you commit to spending money on a device. You can also then book a one-to-one gadget session with the team to learn the basics of the loan device, or any other tech question that you may have.

    If you have a piece of tech in mind that you would like to try out, please contact Jake Preston on:
