Help and accessibility
We want this site to be used by as many people as possible, whether new to computers and the internet, or who have other reasons why using the internet may be difficult. Remember that computers connected to the internet are available to use at most libraries. See the LibrariesWest website for more. We've found three places for you to get help:
Help with using computers
The government runs courses throughout the country for those that want to learn how to use computers. Follow this link to find out about Next Step courses and find one near to where you live.
Help if you are new to the internet
A beginners guide to using the internet is the BBC's Webwise website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/webwise/
Help if you have a disability
For help with using the internet if you have a disability, the 'My Web My Way' website from the BBC provides accessibility help, enabling computer users to make the most of the internet whatever their ability or disability.
