Barclays Digital Eagles give internet advice at One Stop Shop

Published: Thursday, 11 February 2016

A series of drop in sessions from Barclays Digital Eagles have started in the Guildhall’s One Stop Shop which offer practical advice on using computers and the internet.

The drop in sessions are being held from 10am to 4pm every Monday and the tailored sessions will be from 11.30am to 1pm and 1:30pm to 3pm on the last Thursday of each month.

The sessions, which promise to be jargon-free, will offer help around setting up an email account, using search engines effectively, shopping online, watching TV and films online, using Skype to save money on phone calls, staying safe online and much more.

The sessions have been organised by Northampton Borough Council in conjunction with Barclays Digital Eagles who will have trainers on hand for everyone who attends. Council representatives will also be available to help people navigate the borough council’s website and online services.

Katie Stockwin at Barclays said: “The Digital Eagles programme is all about helping customers get the most out of being online, the benefits of being online and getting to grips with technology. We have had feedback from our customers and understand the challenges they face and this programme of sessions is a move forward to our commitment in making their lives easier online. We want everyone, regardless of age, to learn the value of being online whether that is staying in touch with family and friends or saving money.”

Councillor Brandon Eldred, Northampton Borough Council cabinet member for community engagement, said: “We want as many people as possible to come along and take advantage of this great opportunity to learn new skills and use the internet with confidence. The borough council continually works on providing the people of Northampton with more effective ways to access our services online.”

Getting online can be fun and interesting, but it’s also a great way to make your life a whole lot easier. If you’ve got some home admin to do the internet can help you get it done quickly and efficiently.
