Free computer sessions

We know that many of our tenants don’t have the confidence or the know-how to access the internet. That's why we have an arrangement with Learn for Life Enterprise to deliver free computer classes to help our tenants get online.

Being able to do things online like shopping, banking and socialising, can save you money and make things easier and more convenient. Importantly, from November you will only be able to apply for Universal Credit online.

How these classes can help you

If you're a Council tenant and would like to do more on the internet but you're not sure how to, or if you're worried about having to apply online for Universal Credit, then why not sign-up to a class near you?

The classes are held at venues across the city and are run by friendly, helpful advisors from Learn for Life Enterprise who will help you gain the skills you need at a pace that suits you.

As well as help to apply for Universal Credit, the classes also cover lots of other topics like how to stay safe on the internet, staying in touch with friends and family, accessing health and other services and online banking.
