ICE (IT Classes for Elders)

Students at Northumbria Students' Union have given up their valuable time to help older people gain IT skills - and as a result over 400 older people in Newcastle are much more confident in using computers. So if you have never used a computer, or simply want to use one a bit more with friendly help - the students are there to be that help.

The session will run on a Wednesday and is free of charge. The venue Northumbria University.  You can even bring your own equipment (e.g., your iPad) to the session if you’d find that easier.

Please note:  places must be booked for sessions in order to ensure there are sufficent students available to help.

If you would like to book a place, or would like further information, please either email Anne Richardson on [email protected] or telephone 0191 208 2701.
