Sharon Iredale, of Cruddas Park completed the eight-week digital inclusion tablet course run in partnership between Your Homes Newcastle and Newcastle Futures.

During the course participants were shown how to set up their online rent and council tax accounts and also learned how to use the Newcastle library app to download free books and magazines.

After attending the full eight weeks of the course the participants were all given a WiFi enabled tablet so that they can continue on with their online journey.

At first I had no idea even of how to use my smartphone, which my kids thought was hilarious.

Now I think I could give them a tip or two.
