Lets Get Digital! with Age UK

Digital Inclusion – Lets Get Digital!

Age UK Norfolk’s digital inclusion team offers a lifeline to many older people in Norfolk who may lack technical ability. As a result of Covid-19 we have seen many organisations and individuals use more online services than ever before. We have found many older people are being left behind by these changes, making them more isolated. In order to help older people we are setting up ‘Lets Gets Digital’.

Over 12 weeks one of our Digital Inclusion Volunteers will teach you how to use your device (tablet/iPad), for example setting up Whatsapp and answering video calls from family and friends, to more advance support like, online shopping and setting up an email account. What they teach will vary depending on your needs.

If you do not have a device, one will be loaned by us to you for the 12 week duration. At the end of the 12 weeks you will then be given the option to purchase the tablet/iPad off us or we can assist you in finding another device that’s more suited to your needs. Throughout the 12 weeks the Digital Inclusion Volunteer will be supported by the digital inclusion team, should they have any questions or need any support.

If you would like to be a part of this, either by becoming one of our Digital Inclusion Volunteers or maybe you would like to learn how to use a tablet/iPad, please get in touch with Emma via email emma.parker@ageuknorfolk.org.uk
