Go ON Salford

Help to get online

Salford City Council, along with partners throughout the city, is committed to providing opportunities for people to develop digital skills.

Do you know a friend, relative or neighbour who would like help to get online? They may be able to join a computer course or get help from a work club. There is a rolling programme of computer training courses provided in the gateways and main libraries in Salford, starting in April, September and January each year.

Anyone interested can register an interest at any library.

Drop in sessions

If you are having a particular problem, for example with emails, finding your way around the internet or some other computer problem free help from Digital Champion volunteers, is available at:

  • Swinton Gateway, every Wednesday between 1pm and 3pm in the computer suite but you can bring your own device
  • At Boothstown library, every Wednesday between 1pm and 3pm. No appointment needed but you will need to bring your own device

Please ensure that there is sufficient charge in your own device to last the session.
