Get Online drop-in sessions are gradually starting up again at venues around Reading.

Monthly Friday sessions at a new venue – Oak Tree House in Dee Park. Sessions will be on the first Friday of the month at 10am - 12.30pm. The sessions are in a sheltered housing block, but anyone is welcome to drop in and ask for help.

Monthly sessions at the Whitley Wood Community Centre’s Tuesday community hub, on the last Tuesday of the month, 10:00-11.30. Just call in with your device or we can use one of our laptops to help you.

Our popular sessions at Reading Central Library are back! As before, all our sessions are free for anyone needing help with computers and technology to drop in, on a first come first served basis. You can bring your own device or use the library computers.

Come and find us on the first floor of the library:

-Tuesdays 14:00 – 16:00
-Thursdays 14:00 – 16:00
-Saturdays 10:00 – 12:00

Please note that you will need a library card to use the library wi-fi or computers – if you don’t have one you can get one easily from the reception desk if you bring ID. We look forward to seeing you.

Are you interested in helping someone to learn about computers and technology? We are also starting to recruit more volunteers for the project. Sessions will be at various times and venues, mostly on weekdays, and generally last 1-2 hours. If you are interested please email or visit

For people without internet access we have set up a helpline on 0118 334 1095 where we will be giving out recorded messages about the service. You can also leave us a message if you would like remote help or have an enquiry about our service.

Do you (or does anyone you know) need help with computers? We can help you get going - from basic computer use to setting up and using email, internet searches, filling in online forms, word processing and more. We can also help with using laptops, smartphones and tablets and you are welcome to bring your own device if you have one. Free wi-fi is provided at all venues (at libraries you will need a library card). Just drop in and ask - it's free!
