Get Online Week (15-21 October 2018)

(Published on 25/07/2018)

Get Online Week 2018 is coming soon ….

The theme for Get Online Week 2018 which this year will be running 15-21 October is again “Try 1 thing”.

Try 1 thing” that you’d normally do in real life, but try it online – how about trying shopping, banking, ordering a prescription, booking a doctor’s appointment or even talking face-to-face with friends or family. You could also try applying for or renewing your Blue Badge, renewing your library books online, or finding out if you’re eligible for social care support.

It’s never too late to find out how the internet can help make your life easier, cheaper and more fun.

Last year’s events were a real success, people who went along gave positive feedback and said that they found their session helpful and as a result would like to try and do more online.

Quotes ranged from “Very helpful and enjoyable session” “giving me more confidence on my laptop" and "Excellent! Very helpful session. Learned a great deal."

We will have a range of events across Surrey for Get Online Week, including at the following centres:

  • Various libraries

  • Age UK Surrey Computer Drop-in Centre

  • Claygate Centre for the Community

  • Douglas Brunton Centre

  • Junction Café
