The INtouch digital TV site contains information provided by local services, local people and community organisations. As well as using INtouch to find information, residents can also add their own information, make comments and ask questions.

What intouch is

The INtouch digital TV site contains information provided by local services, local people and community organisations. It is available to households who subscribe to Virgin Media (previously ntl and Telewest) digital television, Sky Digital or Netgem. INtouch allows people to get local information and use services using their TV and remote control. It is particularly valuable for people who don't have access to a computer and the internet. As well as using INtouch to find information, residents can also add their own information, make comments and ask questions. This interactivity is an important part of INtouch. It allows residents to stay at home yet still learn, question and be heard.

INtouch is also available via mobile phone. The INtouch mobile site provides another way for people to access local services and information. Anyone who has a mobile phone that can connect to the Internet can use INtouch mobile. This service is particularly useful for anyone who needs to access information whilst away from home.
