Where to get online

These days more and more things are done online, from grocery shopping and booking holidays to applying for a passport, reporting a pothole or making a benefit claim. If you are looking for work or a change of job, then access to the internet is crucial.

If you or someone you know needs a little help to use online services there are many courses available throughout South Lanarkshire. The libraries are a good starting point. There are also many places where you can use free wifi or get access to a PC or tablet if you don't have access at home. Please note that in Universal Connections, internet access is only available if you are aged under 18.

You can use your postcode in the search box below to find your nearest class or internet access point. After you have entered your postcode a of South Lanarkshire map will appear with all of the internet access points marked with an 'I' in a blue box with a yellow border. You can either click on internet access point you want for more details. If you aren't sure which one is closest to your address you can select your address from the list displayed on the left and the map will zoom in to your address.

To see the internet access points nearest to you, zoom out using the zoom tool until you can see the Internet access point marks on the map.  Click on mark to display its location, opening days/times and more details including the support available.

The zoom tool can be seen here in the top left of the map - zoom in using the + sign and out using the - sign. You can move the map around by clicking on it with your mouse and moving it until you are happy with what you see on screen.
