Welcome to Wired up to Wellbeing

Wired up to Wellbeing was a pilot project run through Birmingham's Yardley libraries. The project aimed to promote the independence and well-being of the over 50s, helping you make use of the Internet in a welcoming, safe and supportive environment.

These FREE courses included:

  • Get ‘E-empowered’ and access Birmingham City Council and Government online services.
  • ‘Keep in touch with email’, send digital greetings and photographs.
  • Follow the 'E-plan' for online health and wellbeing advice and guidance.
  • ‘E-friendship’ through safe use of the internet.
  • Discover your ‘E-family tree’ and get back to your e-roots.
  • Join the ‘E-conomy’ to manage your finances and shop online.

The pilot is now over but please contact your local Yardley library to see whether classes are still being run. The materials are available for download on this website and you are welcome to use them at home or with someone you are helping.
