Back to Support

Cambridge Online is a charity that helps people improve their digital skills in a friendly, supportive community. You can book a free one-to-one session with a digital champion who will support you to learn new skills and feel more confident online.

What to expect 

Cambridge Online can help you to get online by teaching you digital skills. They can also support you to make the most of being online, for example searching and applying for jobs, improving literacy and numeracy skills, shopping online, using Facebook and socialising online.

You can attend a drop-in session at the Hester Adrian Centre on Hawthorn Way. Sessions run every day Monday to Friday. There is free parking and cycle parking available, or the best bus to take is the Citi 2.  Visit the website for details and timings.

You can book a one-to-one appointment by contacting Cambridge Online on [email protected] or 01223 300407.

There are PCs available at the Centre which you can learn on (including touch screen and height adjustable tables). If you would prefer to learn on your own laptop, tablet or smart phone you are welcome to bring this along.
