Online learning

The UK may have more internet users than any other EU country, but 1 in 5 adults still don’t have the basic online skills to benefit from the web. But the good news is that there are now lots of online resources, as well as courses available in your local community, to help you make that first step.

Help for beginners to get online:

  • Broadband Savvy helps you make sense of broadband terminology and find the best package for you.

  • Age UK offers advice on how to stay safe online.

  • Computers are available to use, free of charge, for all library card holders in Hampshire Libraries. They also offer Computer courses and events  including one-to-one sessions for beginners. Call the Library Service on 0300 555 1387.

  • Portsmouth libraries and Southampton libraries also offer help with computers.

  • AbilityNet is a national charity which helps people of any age and with any disability to use technology to achieve their goals at home, at work and in education.
