How we began

Connect Communities formed after many voluntary projects assisting people to get into IT; through system repairs, IT training, job searching, IT provision and advice the last decade has seen Connect Communities help people make brilliant use of IT.

We have strong experience teaching IT to every age group; with expertise teaching older people. We have trained residents in assisted living projects, with large and small numbers, one-on-one sessions, varied project needs such as jobsearching, basic IT, media (music, video, pictures), internet and email; we have a passionate belief that anybody can embrace this new wave of communication.

We are patient, tailored and respectful; we want you to find the right technology for you, if it’s even right for you, we pride ourselves on our honesty and integrity in providing you the best service for your needs.
