Sparko TV in action

Sparko is a new interactive TV channel that can connect you to local activities, services, and your family and friends. It is a safe and secure private channel that only you can access. Sparko is a fun service that is tailored to your needs and interests and is easy to use!

Sparko is easy to join and offers group activities through a simple remote control. Activities may include: quizzes, socials, art classes & music. You will get to meet Sparko users from Age UK Redbridge, Barking and Havering(RBH) & connect to Age UK RBH staff, activities & services provided. You will also be able to make & receive video calls with your friends and family through your TV, request a call from services that are local to you including Age UK Redbridge, Barking & Havering Care Navigation, Befriending, Di’s Diamonds Services, etc. You can have medication & appointment reminders on your TV.

In order to use Sparko, you’ll need to have a TV with a HDMI port. Sparko plugs in directly to your existing TV, a small digital box will be connected to the TV. Age UK Redbridge, Barking, Dagenham are working with Sparko to provide the kits at no charge for a 12-month pilot period.
