The current contract between SCC and Heeley Trust for these sessions will end on 31 March.  Whilst the Council undertake work to secure support for digital inclusion work in the future, we will be putting these groups, drop-ins and online classes on hold for a month or so.

If you're interested in computer IT support as a Council Housing tenant, please email or call 0114 2735566. 

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 Heeley Trust 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 all across the city and are run by friendly, helpful advisors from the Heeley Trust 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.
