Would you, or an older person you know, like to become confident in using computers and digital devices?
One Digital is an innovative Big Lottery-funded partnership working across the UK to engage with, support and encourage older people to develop their digital skills and confidence.
Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire and Age UK Gloucestershire are working in partnership to develop a range of educational activities to encourage and allow greater access for people aged 50+ to learn how to use computer devices at their own pace.
If you would like to learn how to:
- Basic IT skills, including setting up your computer, tablet or laptop
- Send an email
- Skype a friend or family member
- Online shopping
- Upload and share photos
- Access important documents including Government paperwork
..and many other things, then please get in touch! We also plan on helping the client with understanding internet security including pop ups and scams.
We plan to consult with people to find out how and what they would like to learn; arrange a few targets and then create a series of sessions to ensure that they can achieve this.We want to make sure that everyone is in the right learning environment, so we’d like to offer group sessions with an IT club, one to one training in their homes or we can arrange other means to suit.
If you know someone who could benefit from this service, please do get in touch! Whatever digital support you may need, please contact us with the information provided below and we will get back to you!
Could you help an older peson get online? Be a Digital Champion!
A Digital Champion doesn't have to be an IT whizz; they just need to have a bit of spare time, an enjoyment of being online themselves, some confidence with basic computer use, and, most of all, a willingness to help others.
