Get online and improve your digital skills

We’ve partnered with AbilityNet to help people with Parkinson’s get online and boost their digital skills.

Whether you’re new to the online world or simply want to grow your confidence in using digital services and devices, we’re here to support you. The service is free and available to people with Parkinson’s and their carers.

You can also call AbilityNet’s helpline on 0800 048 7642 (freephone and minicom) or email [email protected].

"One of your AbilityNet volunteers, Trevor, has been helping me with some very basic computer skills on a tablet that I have hardly touched since it was bought for me as a present from my wife. I suffer from Parkinson’s and it is very difficult for me to concentrate. Trevor has been extremely kind and patient and has opened up a world I hardly knew existed."
