Spring Online

“I have never used a computer before and now I have an email account and can shop online. I am so delighted I came.”

Spring Online is our award-winning initiative that makes it possible for thousands of people, often older people, to try out using computers and tablets and the internet, many for the first time.

This year, between 31st March and 4th April 2014 hundreds of free taster events were held by volunteers and organisations across the UK to help and inspire local people achieve a lasting use of the internet.
