One-to-One Gadget Clinics

From Monday 1st February 2021, our one-to-one Gadget clinics will be returning! 

The sessions will take place on Monday afternoons and will be a dedicated time to learn or enhance your digital skills, supported by a volunteer tutor. These sessions provide the perfect opportunity to help you unlock your digital potential! If you need help with learning how to use Zoom or Whatsapp, or if you were given a new smartphone for Christmas and want to know how to make the most of it, why not sign-up to a Gadget Clinic.  

Please note: we are following Government guidelines, so unfortunately these clinics can only take place via email, telephone or a video chat service of your choice. Once restrictions ease, we hope to return to our Leather Lane boutique and host these clinics face-to-face. 

If you're interested in this service please email: jake.preston@ageukcamden.org.uk or call 020 7239 0400 and we can book you in. 

Multimedia Mondays

In collaboration with Samsung KX, we've been providing weekly digital workshops - Multimedia Mondays - which give older people in Camden the opportunity to learn new skills and find new ways of using technology in everyday life.

These free workshops take place every Monday (as the name suggests) and includes sessions on a range of subjects, including:

  • Scam and fraud awareness.
  • Online virtual exercise classes.
  • Language classes.
  • Meditation for beginners. 

We hope to welcome you to the Samsung KX store in Coal Drops Yard, once restrictions have been lifted, but for the time being our Multimedia Monday sessions will be held online.

Please keep checking our website for more Multimedia Monday events in 2021. Alternatively, subscribe to our mailing list to receive the latest news direct to your inbox.
