Fraudsters have been conning people out of their money and possessions for centuries, but these days technological advances have given them even more ways to deceive and cheat you, and relieve you of your money.  By using the phone or Internet they can do so without your knowing anything about who they are, or their whereabouts – most likely they are not even in the UK.

The “bad guys” have three ways they can exploit:

  • Infect or take control of your computer, tablet or smart phone to steal your money,
  • Use your device to attack someone else.
  • Deceive you into handing over information about your bank or credit card details

Computer Friendly have recently started actively using Facebook and Twitter to help people be aware of Internet-based scams and fraud.

We are linked in to several Twitter and Facebook organisations who promulgate issues, such as Action Fraud, as well as adding more information of our own.

I thought the organisations in the Stronger Together networks may find it useful to have an easy source of reference for Internet scams? Would it be possible for you to forward the details of our accounts to them?



We also have a lot of information on this on our webpage:

Pre peer Mentoring Course

Have you heard of Peer Mentoring?

Want to know more about it?

Have you used Drug & Alcohol services in your recovery?

Mentoring can be defined as a 'one-to-one, non-judgemental relationship in which an individual, the mentor, gives time to support and encourage another.' It recognises people's need for having somebody there for them as they develop skills and gain the confidence to become independent and lead fulfilled lives.

 Our 3 session course is aimed at giving people the confidence and knowledge to take the first step in peer mentoring or volunteering for organisations that provide Drug/Alcohol services in Herts.

The course is held at The Wellspring Church Centre, 1 Wellspring Way, Watford WD17 2AH

(Please note: Satnav WD17 2NU nearest parking is at Kings Car Park)

The course is 3 sessions long, every Thursday. Starting 28th August and ending on the 11th Sept 2014.

If you would like to attend please call Leslie or Tracy on 01707 328014 or email

Reasonable travel expenses and refreshments are provided.

Human Library for Health & Social Care Professionals in Hertfordshire

The “books” in a Human Library are people with expertise in a specific area. When you “borrow” the “book”, you talk to it instead of reading it! 

If you have any specific questions or areas of uncertainty about the Mental Capacity Act or Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards come and ask the experts!
