Cheylesmore Good Neighbours are a charity which indentifies and meets the needs/services for the older and more isolated members of the Cheylesmore Community. We run IT sessions to help these individuals learn more about new techology and teach them the basics so they feel more confident and are able to keep up to date in the modern world.
What are we asking you to help us with?
· We hold one-to-one sessions for seniors who have a tablet/laptop/mobile device that they would like to know more about and use to full advantage.
· Although our members are elderly they are eager to learn, but need patience and repetition to reinforce their knowledge.
· They may be complete beginners, or have some idea of what they would like to learn and you would need to talk to your designated senior at the first session to ascertain their requirements.
· The sessions are 2 hours long, with a short refreshment break included in the middle of the session. Including transport, this therefore requires 3 hours of your time.
