Coffee and Computers - online help @ Online
Face-To-Face Sessions Suspended… But We’re Still Here To Help!
Due to the ongoing health crisis, and inline with government advice, all face-to-face Coffee & Computers sessions are suspended until further notice.
However, we feel it’s hugely important for our community to stay connected, especially as technology can play a big role in helping us get through this difficult time.  So even if we will not be getting together as groups, we will continue to offer help and support to you however we can:
  • Our info@coffeecomputers.org email address is available to answer questions and offer guidance on all matters & issues
  • Our Coronavirus Support page provides links to official support services and local voluntary groups
  • The weekly emails will continue to keep us all in touch and we will aim to also offer handy tips & advice
  • We have compiled a list of useful Resources & Guides, e.g. how to get started with the various communication tools that are available
  • We are investigating various technologies whereby one-to-one help could be offered using via online video & audio calls
In these unprecedented times, it is very hard to know what will be around the corner. Neighbourhoods & communities are beginning to come together to support & help those who need assistance. Given the role that communications technology plays in the modern world, Coffee & Computers has the potential to play an important part in helping individuals access resources and maintain contact.
Learners: Look out for our update emails, and further “how-to” guides for other online applications and resources.  As always, if you need help getting started, have a specific technical issue, or would like help finding/contacting local Coronavirus support services or voluntary groups please do use the info@coffeecomputers.org email address,  and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Volunteers: Please let us know if you are available to assist with any of these initiatives, or if you have any comments or suggestions.
