About this event

North Tyneside-based veterans’ charity Forward Assist, supported by Capita, has organised free computer advice sessions. 

Called Digital Champions, the initiative is aimed at helping people who have limited experience using computers. Capita staff have volunteered to attend and provide assistance at the sessions. Support includes: 

  • How to use the Internet for paying bills and shopping  
  • How to set up an email account 
  • How to search the Internet for information or jobs 
  • How to set up a social media account 
  • How to use Skype 

Forward Assist facilitates ‘Post Traumatic Growth’ for military veterans with combat experience and unresolved trauma issues.  

It also provides support and guidance to former servicemen and women that experience difficulties in adjusting to new life as a civilian.
