Help us reach out to isolated older people in Sunderland by becoming a Video Calling' Volunteer

Age UK Sunderland Digital Inclusion - Keeping in Touch Project

Are you reasonably confident using Apple iPads or Android tablets?

Have you ever used social media applications such as Messenger, Skype, or Facetime to keep in touch with your family and friends? 

Would you like to help us support older people to keep in touch with their friends and family using video calling?

If so, then older isolated people in Sunderland need you to volunteer with us to ease their loneliness!

We are not looking for ‘experts’ as we will train and support volunteers, however,  any experience you may have of using tablets (for the internet or social media) will be a good starting point.       

All volunteers will be supported by our Digital Inclusion Officer.

If you are interested in becoming one of our digital champions, please contact Mike Lowthian on
