apps blur button close up

TechMates is a FREE programme which connects Wigan residents with local digital mentors (our TechMates volunteers) who can provide relaxed, friendly, 1 to 1 support over the phone.

We can help people:

• Learn how to use their device.

• Connect with family and friends through video conferencing.

• Build confidence shopping online.

• Keep safe online.

• And much more!

The programme can be tailor-made to help people gain the skills that really matter to them. It’s important that all our residents have access to the support they need to embrace the power of digital in their everyday life.

Wigan Borough residents can Request help from a TechMate via the Council’s TechMate web pages. If anyone needs help, the request form can be filled in on someone else’s behalf as well.

Visit our Digital Wigan webpages contains lots of useful digital advice and resources for people of all ages, including coding projects for children and families and where to access free courses.
