Who will I help?

Can you remember your frustration the last time the internet gave up mid-Netflix episode? Or when you hit your mobile data allowance a week before your bill date?

Access to the internet is something we take for granted: sharing a photo with friends, looking up a new recipe, booking a train ticket or catching up with family on Skype.

But 8.4 million people in the UK don’t have basic IT skills and nearly two-thirds of those are over 65. That means they are unable to send emails to friends and family, find local services or book activities that can help keep them connected to their community.

How will I help?

Hosted at a local charity, your team will run a drop-in session to provide older people with some of these valuable skills, not to mention giving them a great opportunity to get out of the house for a cup of tea and a chat, too.

You’ll show Dot how to set up a Gmail account on her iPad, help Arthur find his favourite shows on BBC iPlayer and give Noreen the confidence to search for something on Google.

You don’t need to be a computer whizz kid or IT manager to help, just a few basic IT skills and a little patience.
