We need your help

During the pandemic, the world became an increasingly digitalised place. We noticed that our elderly users were becoming more and more isolated as they did not have the technological ‘know-how’ to navigate this new world.  They couldn’t book activities online, shop online, use online banking, download QR codes in restaurants, download and use an NHS app to get into their favourite music or sporting venues or use social media or communication tools to keep in touch with family and friends.

We want to help put this right by providing free computing lessons to teach basic skills and to offer help and advice on how to avoid scams and other financial issues affecting the elderly.
This week we launched our Community Crowdfunding Campaign with Aviva to help raise funds for this project. We would also like to create an IT Hub, with 2 ipads/tablets and a printer and free WIFI so that our community can access the internet easily and we would be on hand to offer advice at all times.
Could you help support us by making a donation? There is lots more information about the project here
