The internet can seem complicated, but our step-by-step guides can help you make sense of it. From keeping in touch with friends and family to doing your shopping and banking, our tips will help you feel confident and stay safe online.

Online essentials

With so much available online, it can be hard to know where to start. We'll guide you through some key steps to help you make the most of what the internet can offer whilst staying safe.



Keeping in touch

The internet provides many opportunities to keep in touch with family and friends, and build new connections. From email to video calling and social media, connecting online can help you feel close to others and help with feelings of loneliness.


Managing your money

Online shopping and banking can be quick and convenient, so will save you time and effort. But it’s important to know how to keep your money and identify safe.


Spending too much time on screen
