Our services for you

Expert advice

We offer you free, confidential and expert advice through our information service. If you need to know about social care, housing, scams or legal issues, we are here to help. Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency, our Information & Advice team will be operating a telephone service only.

Computer Groups

If you've been given a smartphone, tablet or laptop computer and are unsure how to use it, or worried about scams and security, our Computer Groups could be just the thing to get you started. If you're interested, but don't have your own equipment, we have tablets available for loan. Our Digital Champions (volunteers) are trained to give one-to-one help with a range of equipment to help you understand more about using today's technology for web browsing, online shopping, reordering prescriptions, video calls with friends and family, and more.
