The Get Online Reading project to help the town’s people use the internet has been steadily expanding and is now available at two new venues.
Residents of Dee Park now have the chance to go to a monthly drop-in session to help them with technology and the Get Online project has also started working with Reading Deaf Centre.
The Dee Park sessions are open to the public and are held on the first Friday of each month at the new Workhouse Coffee café on Spey Road (RG30 4DD). The good news is that Catalyst Housing, who manage part of the estate, are offering a free coffee too! Just come along with your laptop, smartphone or tablet from 10 to 11.30am and ask for help.
The Get Online project has also started sessions for the deaf community at Reading Deaf Centre. The first session was a presentation on staying safe online supported by a sign language interpreter and future one-to-one support sessions with an interpreter are planned.
There are regular Get Online sessions at libraries and community venues all around the town – further details and a full calendar can be found at www.go-reading.org.
