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.
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.
Volunteers will help with tasks such as:
- Online shopping
- Communicating with family, friends and community groups via email or video calls
- Searching for information
- Accessing learning online
- Downloading and using apps
For more information please call Ashlee Young on 07397 718 455.
