Make getting connected easier

At Sovereign, we have a number of affordable ways to make getting connected easier.


 


Touch Point

These FREE computers are available to use in the reception areas of the following Sovereign offices:

With adjustable and touch-screen monitors, you can use the computers to do anything from log onto MySovereign to pay your rent, to writing your CV and searching and applying for jobs.

There is no need to book a time slot, although computers are only available during opening hours and we can’t guarantee you won’t need to wait while another user finishes up.

If you get stuck, there’s normally someone on reception who can give you a hand and there is no strict time limit for using the computers.

Please read our user guide for rules on using the Touch Points.

Digital Hubs

In many of our Sovereign communities, there are community centres and other locations where a ‘digital hub’ has been set up. 

These hubs have computers and internet available – normally for free or with a small charge – and sometimes have printers and scanners you can use too.

To find your nearest hub, visit UK online centres and type in your postcode.

Low cost hardware

Did you know you can buy reconditioned computer equipment, including desktop computers, laptops and tablets? Prices for computers can start from as little as £99, so it’s well-worth considering.

We now have an agreement in place with Happus through which you can get unlimited broadband for £13.35 including line rental for 12 months. This is exclusively for housing association residents.

For more information phone Happus on 03300 105599 or go to www.happus.eu
