According to Age UK research, nearly two million over-75s in England are still digitally excluded[i] in a COVID-19 world
Our Digital Champion Project offers advice and support to older people who are isolated in their homes, with regard to using digital technology.
Support is available at our friendly groups in North and South Solihull.
One-to-one support is also available. We will allocate you a Digital Champion Volunteer who can provide you with an hour's tuition every week for a three-month period, to support you with using a tablet or computer.
If you do not have IT equipment you could benefit from our Tablet Loan scheme.
The project can help you with:
- Online shopping
- Communicating with family, friends and community groups via email or video calls
- Searching for information
- Accessing learning online
- Downloading and using apps
