Getting online in Partington isn't always as easy as it should be, but we're here to help. Whether it's because you don't have a suitable device, don't have access to broadband or simply don't have the skills, we are working closely with Trafford Council to help.
If you need to use a tablet or digital device these can be used anytime during the week in our Hope community cafe. You can use them for a specific purpose or just to learn to use devices. To borrow a device just speak to any of the staff in the Hideaway or Hope Centre and they will grab one for you. You can also print free in black and white or 5p for a colour copy. Device loaning is available to all Mon-Fri 9.30am - 5.30pm.
Digital learning support
At the Hope Centre, Darren is our lovely tech guru who is on hand to help you find your way around a digital device. We have some fantastic software to teach you at your own pace, in your own time. It usually takes around 6 sessions to complete the Learn my way course.
You can sign up for Learn my way shortly and attend our weekly sessions, or sign up and drop in to complete the sessions at a time that suits you. Everyone who completes the course will receive a £20 voucher, plus another £10 for referring a friend who also completes! There may also be an opportunity to claim a device of your own to keep when you're ready. Contact Darren for more info
Free broadband and calls
Thanks to the National Databank we have an array of sim cards from all the major networks which provide up to 6 months worth of free calls and data to get you online. You can replace the card in your phone and use it to hotspot at home if you don't have broadband. To claim a free SIM card, simply ask for one at the Hope Pantry. There are no restrictions.
