Older people tend to use digital technology less frequently than younger people. This can mean that they miss out on some of the benefits of keeping in touch with family and friends, using email, being able to access information through searching the internet, keeping in touch with what is happening in the local community, watching catch-up TV or listening to the radio.
Through the Community Connections project, we are offering older people the opportunity to become digital included through learning how to use tablet computers, smartphones and laptops.
We can offer 1-2-1 tuition from our team of volunteers and also run courses and workshops through the year. If you are a complete beginner or just need a bit of additional tuition, MAECare can offer you help and support.
If you do not have your own tablet computer, we will be able to loan you one.
If you would like more information about the digital inclusion project or if you would like to join our team of volunteers, please contact Vicky for more information.
If you need advice or would like further information not available on our website then don't hesitate to contact us:
