@Online Club Network – Supporting digital inclusion
Are you 60 or over? Do you want practical experience in going online using tablet devices?
Our free 6-week programme provides opportunities for older people to gain more confidence to go online, connect with the wider world and maintain social connections.
Learn in a small friendly group with a specialist trainer at a number of community venues across Hackney. iPads provided for use during sessions.
Why not attend a free taster session on Friday 11th or 18th January 2019, from 11.00am-12.30pm in the Education Room at Dalston CLR James Library, to find out more.
The aim of the service is to reduce isolation and increase social contact, self-confidence and choice for elderly residents with dementia in the Newham community. In addition, the service offers carers respite and on-going befriending support through regular home visits.
The Life Album project
The Life Album project, funded by Big Lottery in 2014-15, was an opportunity for people referred by Newham Memory Clinic to develop their life story, using iPads and a reminiscence app in a social setting, working with volunteers. Please download the evaluation report on learning here.
For more information on any of these services please telephone or contact us.
