What about free computer help, lesson and support?

Unfortunately, due to the closure of the AgeUK Suffolk Ipswich Help Centre in June 2019, we are unable to offer any free 1-to-1 help during Get Online Week this year. Hopefully we will find a way to offer a similar service next year. So watch this space!

 

Oh no! I missed the Get Online Week!

Don't worry. You are always welcome to join us at the digital skills workshops at the Ipswich County Library and Felixstowe Library (see info above)

 

If you have any further questions or need some help with your computer, tablet, smartphone or the Internet, our friendly local experts are happy to provide you personal help at a convenient time and location to you (e.g. at the comfort of your own home). Find out more here.

 

Have a great Get Online Week!
