Free Computer Access for claiming benefits
Monday, 13 May 2013 07:24

This April has seen the start of some social security benefits being claimed only through an online claim. We thought that we would take the opportunity of promoting UK Online centres that provide computers free for public use, and in many cases also offer free courses to improve computer skills.  You can find UK Online centres near to you on their website just by entering your post code. - UK Online website

Sheffield's Libraries also provide bookable free computer access to library members - see the Council website which also has library opening times.

You can obviously do other things with computer access, such as finding information that may help you sort out a query yourself without needing to see an adviser.  We recommend the Advice Sheffield website, and the CAB Advice Guide website.
