    Make Time to get Online

    Technology is all around us, and it's easy to feel like we're falling behind behind the times. More and more services are becoming online only, from job applications to shopping and paying bills.

    Add in the array of choices when it comes to technology, from laptops, tablets and smartphones , which are all changing the way we get online. So how do we use them effectively?

    The Age UK Darlington ICT Drop-in sessions offer an opportunity to learn about computers and the internet in comfortable surroundings with practical support on-hand. Not to mention a hot cup of tea or coffee!

    What happens at the sessions?

    Our ICT Drop-in sessions have been assisting older people to embrace digital and get online for over 10 years. The group is entirely volunteer-led, with our dedicated volunteers ready to field any questions you have, from the basics such as learning the desktop layout, surfing the internet and sending an e-mail, through to more technical issues such as troubleshooting laptops, printers and tablets.

    We're a down to earth bunch, and aim to keep our advice and support as simple as possible. So come along, see how we can help and we'll keep the techy jargon to a minimum!

    What can I get help with?

    We can help with an array of queries and problems, including:

    • Setting up your new phone, laptop or tablet
    • Creating an e-mail address so you can begin using online services
    • Signing up to Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, WhatsApp, LinkedIn and the vast array of other social networks
    • Using Skype to communicate with relatives
    • Understanding how to stay safe online when making purchases
    • Troubleshooting scanners, printers and other peripherals
    • Sourcing accessibility products, such as screen-readers and configuring accessibility software.
    • Advice on buying a new computer or technology product.
