Local community support using assistive aids and technology

You can use assistive technology to discover more about local history, events, opportunities, and groups you may want to interact with. Search for groups on Facebook that you can join - many public groups and local business promote themselves on Facebook as it is a free programme that is used by millions of people.

How your local library can help you

Devon Libraries are adapting to fit in with the development of new technology. All libraries in Devon now have computers with Broadband access that the public can use. There is no charge for library members to use this- and library membership is free! Some libraries also have computers that have been adapted for use by people with sensory or movement disabilities. 
Devon libraries can also help you to discover local history. The county collection of local history material is in the process of moving to the Devon Heritage Centre, Sowton. Other large collections are held at Barnstaple and Exmouth Libraries.
