GET ONLINE AND CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19): Being a public-facing project, we are following official advice and suspending the project for a time. The online calendar of sessions has been removed from this site for the time being.

We hope to restart the project at a future date when recommended by public health advice. Please check this site for the latest information on sessions.


Welcome to Get Online Whitley & Whitley Wood, South Reading’s digital inclusion project.
Whitley was awarded funding from ‘Your Community, Your Cash’ to set up a digital inclusion project for South Reading.

A partnership was formed between local residents, Reading Borough Council (Older persons services and Whitley Library), Reading Voluntary Action, PlayBarn and the Whitley Community Development Association.

The money was used to purchase laptops and printers that can be shared between different locations and community groups in Whitley.

Local volunteers are always on hand at the sessions to support people with all their computing questions, from using email to getting the computer to read out the text for people struggling to read the screen.

If you’ve ever wondered what all the fuss about computers is about, or wished that you could make better use of your smartphone or laptop then please come along to one of our friendly sessions.  No experience necessary!

Our expert volunteers will work with you individually and answer all your questions. Find out you how to get the most out of the internet for you!
