Bramley Tech Buddies: Anzir Boodoo offers Facebook support.

A FRIENDLY new group is taking the confusion out of computers by providing support to those who need it.

Bramley Care Bears Tech Buddies is run by a small group of volunteers who meet twice-weekly in Broadlea Community Centre.

They aim to help people make good use of computers, tablets or phones.

Volunteer Anzir Boodoo said: “People were struggling with not really knowing how to use their tech. The sessions help people build confidence and skills.”

Support: Volunteers work closely with people who need their confidence boosting.

Sessions have ranged from how to browse the internet through to spreadsheets and social media.

Resident Sheryl Wormald said: “It’s really built up my confidence. I didn’t know what to do before.”

Philip McConnell, from the Bramley Care Bears group which runs the sessions, added: “The sessions are friendly and informal, people come along and get the help they need – and even the volunteers who run it are learning new things as well. All are welcome.”

Tech Buddies runs every Monday and Friday, 2-3.30pm, at Broadlea Community Centre. Call 07805 225270 for details.
