Connecting to a VPN through Orange broadband?

I am trying to connect to a VPN through Orange broadband but get told it is no longer available. Orange have told me it is because they do not support VPN (dont ask me why). I have also been told it can be done by changing the IP address but because they do not support it they cannot tell me what that address is. Does anybody know how it can be done? Thanks.

What is a VPN?

VPN is (Virtual Private Network) were first used by companies to enable their employees to securely access internal systems such as email remotely (e.g. from home or while on business trips). Today they are increasingly being used for personal use by individuals to protect their privacy while online in public places (e.g. when using the wi-fi connection in a cafe) or in a country where the internet is censored / blocked (e.g. China, Saudi Arabia…).
