Digital inclusion

It can be challenging to figure out and keep up with technology when products and online services are evolving so rapidly. Our digital inclusion service is here to help you make sense of the internet and technology, and make the most of digital tools that will make your life easier. There‘s a whole range of free, confidential support and services that we can connect you to, provided by us and our specialist partners.

We’ve partnered with Barclays to improve digital confidence and skills for all SNG customers. Using their free online learning platform – Digital Wings – you have the opportunity to learn something new or build on your existing digital skills. You don't need to be a Barclays customer to use Digital Wings.

Digital Wings provides online training courses, helping you learn your way and at your own pace. Digital Wings aims to boost your digital skills and confidence and all courses are free. Choose courses to suit your current level - whether starting out with essential digital skills, building on your existing skills, or looking for something more advanced, there’s something for everyone.  

There are over 75 modules to choose from some including getting started online, staying safe online, smartphone and tablet basics, building your skills with Google or Microsoft 365 applications, how to avoid online scams and much more!
