IT guides and information to help those isolating during COVID-19

Friends at the End have created a series of IT guides, and provided some helpful links to assist members and their families to navigate key websites and online services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

These guides are useful for people who have not used online shopping, social media messaging services, video calls etc. before and give a simple step by step guide of what to do. This will help people to access critical services and reduce social isolation during these unprecedented times.

We have four IT guides available:

Shopping on Amazon

Online shopping for groceries

Video calling using a laptop

Creating a Facebook account and using Facebook Messenger

Here are some further helpful links:

NHS Scotland self help guide

NHS Symptom Checker

Official UK Government COVID-19 Information

NHS Health at Home (including ordering prescriptions online)

Mental Health and Wellbeing

Scams: COVID-19 Scams awareness

If you have difficulty using any of the guides or websites, please call the office on 0141 356 4222 or email

In the meantime, keep safe and well.
