There are many positive reasons for older people to be computer and internet users. We can help you to learn.
A group of volunteers who are confident computer users are offering their time to tutor people to use a computer and the internet.
Many people who have already been taught are now enjoying using the internet for: keeping in touch with family and friends, shopping, researching family history, booking holidays, researching activities, editing and sharing photographs, and social network sites.
The training takes place at free weekly drop in sessions where volunteers help people who have little or no experience, and also those who just need a little help or are struggling with a particular program or function.
You can chat, share ideas, get help and advice and even help others and you can bring along your own laptop, tablet or smartphone or use equipment provided.
The drop in sessions take place at:
Hartshorne Court, Burton Street, Dawley, Wednesdays 10am -12 noon
Oliver Court, Ladycroft, Wellington, Wednesdays 2pm – 4pm
Newport Cottage Care Centre, Wednesdays, 12 – 1pm
No need to book, just drop in, but please CONTACT US for more information.
If you are interested in volunteering as a tutor, please enquire by completing this form.
