WDH is making life easier with Get Online Week

Published 14 October 2016

WDH is coming to the heart of Wakefield’s communities as part of Get Online Week (17-21 October), aiming to help even more people use the internet so they can enjoy a better quality of life.

The internet can make life easier in ways both big and small – and using it can be much simpler than people think.  From staying healthy or finding work, to saving money and having fun, there are lots of ways people can benefit from being online. 

WDH’s Digital Angels are celebrating Get Online Week and visiting different locations across the district throughout the week to help people get started. 

If you have a friend or family member who has never used a computer or tablet before, or if you need some pointers to make the most of being online, our Get Online Week events might be the answer.

Come along and visit our Mobile Hub for help to get online or with any other enquiries at the following locations:

Monday 17 October

Madeley Road, Havercroft from 1.30 pm to  3.30 pm.

Gerard Maguire, WDH’s Customer Excellence Manager, says:  “It doesn’t matter if you’ve never even touched a computer before or if you already know a bit - this is your chance to give computers and the internet a go.  It’s fun, it’s free, and it could change how you do your favourite things - and your everyday chores - forever! Come along to one of our events and see what you could do with technology, and what technology could do for you.”
