Age UK Trafford Silver Surfers Computer Courses / iPad courses

The courses are tailored to meet the needs of older people and are delivered in a fun informal setting within a small group. The course is designed to give people the confidence and ability to start using computers as part of their everyday lives.

We also arrange a number of drop-in sessions and follow on courses and there is an opportunity to meet up with your fellow learners within the libraries after the course to practise your new found skills.
