We all know that we live in a digital age and at Age UK Suffolk, we are here to support older people access new technology and learn IT skills that can help them remain independent and socially connected.
Learning simple computer skills can help with a multitude of daily tasks, such as sending emails, shopping online, typing a letter and even using Skype to maintain contact with family and friends.
This is why we have teamed up with Lxpert to launch a new initiative, through which older people will be able to access free tech advice and support at the Age UK Suffolk Upper Brook Street charity shop in Ipswich.
Customers will have an opportunity to speak to one of the local volunteer IT experts from the Lxpert community about any computer, IT or technology related issues they might have. Appointments can also be pre-booked at the shop. Sessions will take place every Thursday.
The initiative is a part of Lxpert’s ongoing CSR programme aimed at driving digital inclusion within the society. Lxpert's Founder and CEO, Kennedy Cheng, says: “Many elderly people feel left out in today's digitalised world, missing out on various technology innovations because they are shy of using something they don’t quite understand. At Lxpert, our friendly local IT experts are here to help others demystify technology and gain confidence and skills they need to make use of technology. It could be about searching for a cooking recipe, joining a knitting discussion board or getting in touch with old friends and family on social network. Anything is possible!" says Kennedy Cheng "We are here to help people get the most from technology and to enrich their lives."
