@Online Club Network – Supporting digital inclusion
Are you an older resident in Hackney or Tower Hamlets? Do you want practical experience in going online using tablet devices?
Our free programmes provide 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 and Tower Hamlets. iPads provided for use during sessions.
Dementia support services (Newham)
We provide a relaxed and supportive environment through monthly Music for the Mind and Memory Cafes for Newham residents recently diagnosed with dementia and their carers. We also provide specialist one to one advice and support. The service is funded by LB Newham. Telephone 0208 472 0658 for more information.
Case work support for those with dementia and/or their carers
We also provide an independent case work service for people who need to deal with a change in their circumstances and have a requirement for more intensive, short term support by a worker. This service is grant funded by Lloyds Bank Foundation. Telephone 0207 366 6343 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
