Computer Club

PCH have a free computer club for residents. There is no need to book for this friendly drop-in session. Come along and use our desktop computers, laptops and tablets – or bring your own and use the free Wi-Fi.

You can start at the beginning, learning to search the internet or create an email address. Or maybe you want to learn something new, like keeping in touch using social media, or topping up your skills in Word or Excel. A tutor is on hand to help you learn new skills at your own pace.

Every Wednesday 1pm and 4pm at Plumer House.

In addition, Plumer House is now a UK Online Centre with Learn My Way which gives you access to free online training courses. Search Learn My way on our website www.plymouthcommunityhomes.co.uk and use our sign up code 8000268 and choose any course that suits you.
