Help with new technology

We offer regular workshops and computer drop-in sessions at various locations in the Borough. Come along and join a relaxed, informal group with friendly technical experts on hand to help you. Sessions are open to everyone and you can borrow one of our laptops or tablets if you don't have your own.

Or perhaps you would prefer a one-to-one session for detailed help with your laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Please contact us to arrange a session for you (cost is £10 per hour), or you can buy 3 sessions for £25.

We are also able to run courses in sheltered housing schemes and other community locations. We can bring laptops and tablets to these locations. Please call to discuss your requirements.

For more information and booking forms please contact or telephone Gill on 020 8744 1965.
