Get Online Today in Northern Ireland

Technology can make life easier if you have sight or hearing problems, but knowing where to start isn't always easy.

What do we do?

Our team of staff and volunteers will help you discover how to get the most out of being online – from the basics of using a smartphone to staying in touch with family and friends, to browsing websites and sending emails, to keeping up with news or your leisure interests.

Our Online Today team will walk you through whatever you need to feel more confident in using the technology that most suits you.

And you don’t even have to own technology, through Online Today you can try before you buy!

Betty explains how, with a bit of support from our team, she can do all sorts of things with her iPad including sending her daughter an email.
