Our Computer Sharing Centres

They provide easy and reliable access to the internet for email, shopping, online banking, looking up information and entertainment and so much more...

Our Centres provide their members with easy, fun and one-to-one instruction on all aspects of computer and internet use - every week of the year.

Set up

Each Computer Sharing Centre has a set design for the room, including furniture and fittings. The hosting company (often a retirement village) is given the specifications and can either own or rent the fittings. The hosting company is normally responsible for cleaning the room.
