itea & biscuits

Did you know that its itea and biscuits week?

Age UK are running taster sessions and events all across the UK encouraging older people take a look at the way digital technologies can transform their lives for the better.  A friend of mine who has adopted London as her new home told me recently that the happiness of her parents who live in New Zealand has increased ten fold since they have learned how to use skype and can see and speak to their grandchildren on a regular basis.

These sessions are not just about encouraging people to get online but they are also informing older people about a huge variety of digital technologies eg mobile phones and digital cameras. Age UK has a huge and varied list of volunteering opportunities why not take a look at what's available in your area.

If you live in London, TimeBank also runs digital inclusion programmes like Digitall and Futures Together so why not take a look and see if they might interest you?
