Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland have responded to the (ever) changing needs of the Community in these challenging times and their Think Digital Project and its Digital Champion Volunteers have gone Online.
Although it might feel scary to many, we can help 1:1 with Smartphones (both Android and iPhones) Android Tablets, iPads, Laptops and Desktops. We have already helped many people gain confidence in using their equipment; download Apps that help them keep in touch with family; assisted Grandparents to enjoy reading bedtime stories to their grandchildren; set up Tablets so that those living alone can have “Virtual Meals” with family and friends; applying for jobs; online shopping – and much more. We are also looking at the possibility of a Tablet Loan Scheme as we appreciate many do not have equipment or even broadband and need some support to get started with technology.
Let us know if this is something you would be interested in. Whether you need support by phone or online; want to be kept informed about physical IT Help Groups when they re-start, or just don’t know where to begin – give the Project a call on 0116 223 7371 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our very best to help.
