The purpose of the project is to provide people aged 50+ with the opportunity to have access to the digital world and provide the support to experience it safely while getting the most out of it.

Age UK South Lakeland provides a telephone helpline service aimed at helping older people get online or find general IT support. This service is part of our larger Digital Inclusion project.

As part of this project, we will provide you with a working tablet and Internet Connectivity for a 3 month period, free of charge. We will also provide you with support and guidance to enable you to make best and safe use of your internet experience. Participation in our Digital Inclusion project is offered to those with no existing digital technology.

Benefits of Using a Tablet:

  • Keep in touch with friends and family.
  • Manage finances, NHS appointments, and online shopping.
  • Find out 'What's On' in your area.
  • Learn more about your favourite interest or a new one.
  • Share photos and be creative.

For more information about our Digital Inclusion project, the free tablet loan scheme, or other assistance with getting online which Age UK South Lakeland may be able to provide, please give our helpline a call on 030 300 30003.
