We offer accessible learning with our Learning support assistant in a friendly atmosphere. Anyone wishing to attend can self refer, or be referred by Health and Social Care agencies.
Our sessions aim to meet the needs of individuals with personalised support for example, large print text and accessible equipment.
Adults of mixed ages and abilities attend the computer centre and are all on their own personal learning journey. Further to this, we can support adults with a range of needs including, for instance, improving basic skills, learning to send, open, and search emails and understanding social media. Finally, no one is judged on their abilities, just given the time and support needed to learn.

You can register at any time during the year.
