Personal Digital Support

At Home

We can provide 1-1 support in the comfort of your own home; learn how to use your device, getting online, using social media etc.
(This support is for those who find it difficult to get out and about due to mobility or own a non portable device.  Please note this support is dependant on volunteer availability).

At Age UK Isle of Wight

We can provide tailored 1-1 support by experienced Age UK IW staff members. Learn how to use your device, getting online, using social media, Word, Skype, cloud storage, online shopping etc. These sessions are ideal for going at your own pace and covering exactly what you would like to learn.

Age Friendly Island LogoThe Digital Inclusion Project is part of the Age Friendly Island partnership funded by the National Lottery through the BIG Lottery fund.  The aspiration of the 5-year project is to make the Isle of Wight a truly great place to grow old, while also tackling social isolation.

The partnership includes organisations committed to building an Island that values, respects, and actively supports older people, with the voice of older residents at the heart. Encouraging older adults to take a more active role in their communities, and enabling their voices to be heard by services and organisations across the Island.
