Our Digital Champions are here to help

Donate to Digital Inclusion 

Help us bridge the Digital Divide in Hammersmith and Fulham 

Being digitally included can help older people stay connected with family and friends, enjoy greater convenience and explore their interests. Our Digital Inclusion program offers a helping hand to older people in Hammersmith and Fulham who are curious about getting online. Our aim is to help each of them grow digitally confident and we need your help.  

Digital Skills have never been more important. As more and more services move online, many older adults are getting left behind. From booking appointments with a GP to paying bills, older adults are increasingly expected to climb daunting digital hurdles with little support. The online world can be a scary place. From viruses to scams, one only needs to listen to the news to feel intimidated. 

This is where you come in. A donation of £20 can help one older person have a one-to-one session with a Digital Champion.

Our Digital Champions take an individual approach with each of our clients who, guided by their interests are eased into their digital journey. Armed with the information they need on how to avoid scams and surf safely, our clients grow increasingly confident online. Our aim is to help them manage the basic day to day tasks that so many of us take for granted and have fun while they go. 

For isolated older people, gaining digital skills can be a lifeline to the outside world. COVID 19 has brought opportunities to engage with many social activities online and to participate in meetups with distant family and friends. Being able to explore interests online independently can help older people find like minded friends and develop a social life that would not have been possible otherwise. 

The difference you can make for an older person with your donation is truly life changing.

Thank You to All Our Donors!

It is because of all of you we are able to buy a new minibus and continue our shopping service.

We needed to raise enough money to buy a new minibus that complies with Transport for London's Low and Ultra Low Emission Zones.

We're so pleased with the response from our community and we can't wait to tell you all of our adventures.

Our shopping service is the only way some of our clients get out. The new minibus will ensure people can access this service, as well as day trips and outings for years to come.
