One of the aims of this project is to help the people of Shropshire to get online. So how can they do that?
Below you will find a list of locations to get online. There are also many resources available to help get someone online.
Firstly people can contact us. The Community Council of Shropshire, where we are based, is a UK Online Centre and we can help people take their first steps online here in one to one sessions or in small groups. You can download our UK Online Centre leaflet here and our contact details are shown on the right. We dont have set opening times, give us a call to discuss your needs.
You might not be able to get to us or maybe you feel another option more appropriate. Give us a call and we will find you the most suitable option.
