Age UK Maidstone

We are a successful independent local charity registered in 1972 promoting the welfare of the older residents of the Borough. We were originally founded in 1957 as Maidstone Old People’s Welfare Committee.

Here at Age UK Maidstone, we believe older people are entitled to the help they need to improve their own sense of well being, to promote independence and to have control of their own lives.

Computer classes

If you are thinking about buying a computer or already own one, but are not sure how to get started, then our free classes are perfect for you.
All that we ask is that you are over the age of 50 and are a Maidstone Borough council taxpayer.
Each class takes place in our Mill Street office computer suite twice a week over a four-week period and can accommodate up to eight people.

In each two-hour session you will learn basic but essential skills such as mouse control, internet browsing, keyboard skills and how to create your own email address.  

Over 300 local people have completed the course so far and our classes have helped people to book holidays and tickets online, contact loved ones and interact with others on social networking sites.

If you would like sign up for our classes, please contact our Mill Street office using the details below.
