Our aim is to improve access to digital and build people’s confidence with technology and their awareness of what is available to them; so they can not only cope, but excel in the digital world.
Focusing on the lonely and isolated, we support the over 50s in Middlesbrough to use digital devices and online services better:
- keeping them connected to friends, family and the wider community
- accessing the many services which are moving online, like GPs and government services
- accessing devices and internet connectivity
- learning new skills
- staying safe online
We have a digital library, cybercafe, YouTube channel and helped create furbdit, a partnership which refurbishes donated devices and distributes them to people in the community.
