Get Online Week 2017 runs from October 2 – October 8, and this year, it’s asking you to Try 1 Thing– use the internet to do just one thing you’d normally do in a shop or bank, in a doctor’s or chemist, or even over the phone.
Whether you’re brand-new to the internet, or you want a bit of help making more out of being online, local events with free and friendly support will help you take your next step.
Almost everyone has heard about some of the ways the internet can help you save money, save time, and make life easier and more fun. But if you’re not confident using a computer, tablet or smartphone, or you’ve heard about some of the dangers of being online, it can be difficult to take that next step.
But getting the most out of the internet doesn’t have to be scary. We think that doing just one thing online is all you need to do to get started, and we’re running events to help people do just that!
We will be holding drop in sessions and workshops throughout the week with help from our friends at Connect Lockleaze and a few other places (scroll down to see the details) and there will be lots of friendly support for anyone who wants to start doing a bit more online – and it’s absolutely free.
People can call us to find out more. The more the merrier and everyone’s welcome!
