Get Online Centre

Opened January 2023

The Isle of Man Government's new Get Online Centre is a dedicated space for developing digital skills, confidence and awareness to be able to use devices, browse the internet and embrace digital. The Centre provides training and access to the internet, to ensure everyone has the opportunity to get online for free.

The training and support is provided by our friendly trainers, helping learners understand the benefits of being online and showing them how to complete a range of simple activities that can make a huge difference to those who cannot or do not use the internet.

The GOC offers weekly training in both group and 1:1 sessions and since opening we have supported over 70 users, on topics such as:

  • Online shopping
  • Access to email
  • Online safety
  • Using smartphone/Ipad
  • Using social media/Skype/Zoom

There is a training room to deliver group sessions and we also invite organisations to use this space to deliver or host digital inclusion related activities, whether it be training or an awareness raising event, we would like to encourage like-minded organisations to take advantage of this space and help promote digital inclusion on the Island.

Since opening in January 23 more than 90% of users would recommend our services or use them again in future. Our service has enabled users to connect with friends and family, update documents and access online platforms.
