What is the Echo Spot project?

Do you find accessing online resources via a computer difficult or frustrating? Would you like to try something new?

We are excited to find out whether the Amazon Echo Spot could help improve independence and reduce isolation for older people across Cornwall. We are looking for 32 people who would like to help us trial this new technology. We will:

  • Provide you with a new device to be used in the comfort of your own home.
  • Help you with installation & set-up
  • Keep in touch using our Digital Health Champions
  • Help you take advantage of the full range of functions
  • Get feedback on how the devices could be improved and more suited to local people.

About the Role

Echo Spot devices can offer a new form of connection and independence for everyone.
We are looking for inspired volunteers who can help us deliver and set-up these devices for individuals in Cornwall, giving older people in the county the chance to test this technology for themselves.

If you can give even 1-2 hours a week, we want to hear from you, please contact our Helpline on 01872 266383
