Free digital sessions

Our digital champions run a range of sessions to help you get online. You can get one-to-one help at a 'Get Online' session, or you might be interested in joining one of our free online basics courses.

Get Online sessions

These one-to-one sessions will give you more confidence using a computer, tablet or smartphone to access online services. You can ask us about using your device on the internet, or we can help if you're thinking about buying some equipment to get online.

We can help you with things like:

  • using the internet
  • setting up email
  • online safety
  • using council services online to pay for, apply for, or tell us about something

Sessions take about 45 minutes. You can bring your own device with you if you have one, or you can use one of ours on the day.

You can request to attend any of the sessions below by filling in our online form, calling (01226) 773555, or by calling into your local library.
