We teach elderly people how to use their phones, tablets and laptops so that they can remain independent and connected with the community. We have three different projects - Cheylesmore, Earlsdon, and Ekta-Unity.
There is NO previous experience required! If you know how to work your phone/laptop/tablet then you'll be able to teach the elderly learners how to use theirs. Often you'll be teaching them quite basic skills like how to use Google Maps, iPlayer and send emails. You can find a typical lesson plan here for further information. In the unlikely event that something that you are unfamiliar with arises during the sessions, one of the project leaders will always be there to help!
We have projects in four different locations. Each project has a different time commitment. To find out more about each project click the links below!
