Getting online

We are committed to making sure you have access to computers and the internet, as well as making sure you have the skills to use them.

The changes caused by the Welfare Reform means that in the future you may have to make benefit claims online.

For example, if you’re entitled to claim Universal Credit you will need to apply and manage your claim online.  

Need help and advice getting online?

We can help you access the internet and show you how to use a computer, laptop or tablet device.

We can also show you how to:

  • complete benefit claim forms
  • set up digital banking 
  • stay in touch with family and friends using social media or Skype
  • pay your rent or bills
  • shop and save money
  • look for and apply for jobs

Access to training and equipment

We can help you to get online and take part in computing courses and training. We can also refer you to Link's laptop loan scheme - this allows you to try out a tablet device or laptop for six months to see if you would like to buy one in the future.

If you are interested in available training or the laptop loan scheme, please contact us.
