GoOnLine

GoOnLine is a drop-in service which helps older people  in rural areas, including OPAL Club members, learn how to access the internet with the one-to-one support of volunteers. The service aims to foster use of the internet to pursue peoples’ personal interests.

Please note that normal sessions are temporarily suspended due to the present circumstances of Coronavirus (COVID-19) 

However, we are pleased to announce that we have volunteers who are willing to support over the phone, anyone who is over 60 in rural West Cheshire who is in isolation and having difficulties with their phones, laptops or tablets

You can book to speak to a volunteer by phoning the organiser Jean Toyn on 07923 425 239

We have volunteers available on the days and times as demonstrated below.
