Technology can make life easier if you have hearing or sight problems, but knowing where to start isn't always easy. Online Today is a Big Lottery funded project led by RNIB that aims to help people get to grips with these technologies.

NCBA will be hosting another information session at Reiver House, Morpeth on Wednesday 29 June, 10am - 12noon. During the session we will give you the information and knowledge to realise the benefits of being online and understand how it can assist you in your everyday life. You will get the chance to have practical hands-on experience, so you try out the products yourself, as well as demonstrations.
