The events have been organised by West Sussex County Council, Chichester District Council and Selsey Town Council.
Debbie Kennard, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Safer, Stronger Communities, said: “Our everyday lives are consumed within a digital world to do most tasks, whether that’s keeping up to date with our friends and family, ordering our shopping, paying a bill or checking our bank balance.
“Sometimes this can be daunting and knowing how to do this safely or what online tools you can use to make life easier, can be something of a minefield.
“Our Digital Tea Parties are perfect for finding out how to stay safe online, as well as getting top tips on using a variety of digital tools, to help you in your everyday life.”
Peter Wilding, Cabinet Member for Support Services at Chichester District Council, said: “This is a great opportunity for residents to access help and advice on making the most of their digital tablet, smart phone or computer, while also finding out the many services that we offer online.
“Many people find it difficult to get out and about, others find it difficult to fit everything in the day, while some residents want to access services around the clock. We are looking forward to showing people how they can access many of our services, anytime, any day, wherever they are. This is one of many ways in which we are trying to make our services more flexible and accessible for our customers.”
