Easy PC Digital Inclusion Project
Easy PC takes place every Monday from 10am–4.30pm with Steve, and every Friday from 10am–2.30pm with Helen. We have been running sessions here since 2013.
This one-to-one computer skills support service helps older people to push past their technology fears and learn all about the internet and computers. The class also helps unemployed people who are looking for work.
The weekly classes are open to all, regardless of experience and ability. Topics covered include:
- An introduction to computers
- Learning to use e-mail
- Social media
- How to use Zoom
- Online shopping
- Internet security
If you want to improve your IT skills or just go over the basics, then this is the place for you. To book your space email email@example.com or call 0117 955 1351.
Easy PC and our other Digital Inclusion services are funded by the St Monica Trust Digital Inclusion Fund.
Open Access Public Computers
We offer a bank of five free public computers and Wi-Fi as part of our work towards digital inclusion. We provide free access throughout the day and evening (during our opening hours). The computers are arranged on individual desk stations and separated by clear screens. The service is Covid-19 safe and you don’t need to book in advance.
If you don’t have a fixed address, don’t worry. Up to 15% of our users fall into this category. This facility is used by over hundred local people per annum, many of they look for work or access support, email and social networks.
If you need support accessing the computers, please ask for help at Reception.
Reception Support and Signposting
Our Team offer informal support with CVs, cover letters, emails, scanning and printing. Also, basic proofreading and signposting to other services, where necessary.
The support is offered ‘there and then’. We are always looking for volunteers who would like to support the Reception. Tasks include data entry, help with printing, scanning and photocopying, assisting members of the public with computers and accessing information online, tidying up leaflets and notice boards. If you can spare a couple of hours regularly and would like to volunteer with us, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or ask at the Reception.
The services have previously been funded through Bristol City Council’s Bristol Impact Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund – Awards for All.
