The web can be liberating for disabled and disadvantaged people – but a lack of training, accessibility and funding means the online world is a step too far for many.
Cambridge Online help people from Cambridgeshire and the wider area to get online by teaching computer skills, and provide a range of courses to help people make the most of being online – including searching and applying for jobs, literacy and numeracy skills, shopping online, using facebook and socialising online, contacting government and health services, leisure and healthy living – in fact, they will try to help you learn anything people want to do online! They specialise in helping disabled and disadvantaged people, but our services are open to all.
Cambridge Online provide training on personal computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones. They have a wide range of accessible hardware and software for people to try. Due to generous support from various sponsors, many of the services that they offer are provided free of charge or at low cost.
They run public access points and outreach sessions at various centres around Cambridge.
