Digital support for those new to the internet regardless of age or disability

We have access to a variety of formal and informal help to demystify accessing the internet, whether it is disability creating barriers to understanding or lack of awareness of those functions to help you manage your day-to-day tasks. Normally we provide face-to-face activities at our drop in centre (located in Shiremoor, North Tyneside), because we have a social mission that integrates instruction with community-based activities to ensure that digital processes are considered in relation to the real world life at neighbourhood level. The current national emergency has created challenges for many we exist to support in that they are unable to participate in our annual programme of activities. This is why we are able to extend help remotely using peer support as well as online help using our web platforms. Our public website is an ideal way to keep in touch as well as keeping up to date with what we are doing. There are many of course with no internet access because of digital poverty or because they don’t know where to start. To address these factors we work with local agencies to connect to those needing our help so that collaboration is key to reaching out to those socially and economically excluded. Whether you are aware yourself of someone who could do with some friendly support or you are very new to using digital processes you can get in touch via our public website: or you can get in touch with us at our shared space at North Tyneside Disability Forum, Earsdon Road, Shiremoor, NE27 0HJ Tel 0191 4661667.
