Free home computer tuition for housebound; tablet course postponed until January

Over the next six weeks expert (DBS checked) tutors will be on hand to deliver free tuition sessions, either with iPads or internet-ready laptops, to the homes of housebound/lonely/isolated people, or those suffering from ill health.

The aim of the project is to break down loneliness and isolation by helping people:

  • stay in touch with friends and family
  • order shopping
  • save time and hassle and money dealing with online public services
  • access health websites
  • keep the mind active
  • look up hobbies and interests on any subject from gardening and cooking to knitting.

For further information please call Sue or Saima at Heeley Development Trust on 0114 2500 613 or email

Meanwhile, the tablet/iPad classes, advertised to start 29 November 2013 in the Benty Lane Scout Hall, will now start 10am on Friday 13 January 2014.
