Citizens Online

Citizens Online’s Digital Champions can provide support with navigating new technology or accessing online services such as booking online appointments, grocery shopping or connecting with friends and family.

They offer free over the telephone support or can organise face-to-face assistance in a public space such as Leighton Buzzard Library.

Tablet Loan Scheme

In partnership with Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity, we can now offer residents of Leighton-Linslade the opportunity to loan a tablet or prepaid router free of charge. This is subject to a referral from one of our Citizens Online Digital Champions.

If you feel you or someone you know would benefit from this scheme please contact Citizens Online on 0808 196 5883.
