You can never be too old to go online. Accessing the internet opens up a world of opportunities including financial inclusion, improving independence and reducing social isolation and loneliness.
We have a computer loan project that is ideal if you are considering buying a computer but would like to 'try before you buy'. This scheme involves loaning a computer with internet access for a limited period whilst receiving support from a volunteer.
We also work closely with other organisations and businesses to offer computer and Ipad taster sessions. If you would like to find out more about these sessions then contact us using the details below.
