Did you Know?

It is estimated that around 16% of the UK population are unable to browse the Internet and use technology devices without assistance.

Why is this a Problem?

With more services going online and removing face to face contact, it is assumed that everyone has the capacity to adjust to this new digital age.

What is it?

Free six week course:

At Solent Mind, we have created a free casual 6 week course into the digital world, set in a safe and calm environment based across Hampshire.

Here you can learn how to:

  • Navigate phones, tablets, and computers confidently
  • Browse the Internet safely
  • Create an email account and communicate online
  • Access GP’s and mental health services online
  • Order groceries and shop online
  • Have fun with technology and build confidence

Free drop ins:

Do you have a technical issue with your personal device?

Is there something you would like to do online but would like some assistance with?

Do you want to learn something specific digitally on your personal device?

Then please come along to the digital drop In!
