No need to fear the internet

MANY older people fear learning to use a computer, all their working life they have probably never used one or in their day learnt it at school.

But there are courses all over the country to enable older people to be able to use the internet, opening another world to them or being able to communicate quickly by sending an email.

In many cases these courses are free or available at a very low cost and do not take a huge amount of time.

Many people do not have a computer in their homes, but can use one often free at their local library or at the customer care centres of their council. Many would wish they had learnt years ago.
