At Rosebery, we understand the importance of using digital skills in everyday life and the benefits of being connected to the internet. We regularly host digital sessions for our residents who feel they might benefit from learning how to get online, how to use the internet, their My Rosebery account, Rosebery app and more.
Sessions take place in the Rosebery office in Epsom (Third Floor, Newplan House, 41 East Street, Epsom, Surrey, KT17 1BL) or can be organised in sheltered schemes or resident homes if travelling is difficult.
The sessions are free to attend for Rosebery residents, but if you have a tablet, laptop or smartphone that you would like to learn on, please bring these along.
Learning topics can be tailored to what you want to learn, and can include ideas such as:
- setting up an email account;
- using social media;
- using your My Rosebery account;
- staying safe online;
- shopping online and saving money;
- using skype;
- finding local information invents;
- using the Rosebery app; and
- anything else!
