Age UK Wandsworth promotes service ‘Digipals’ which helps older people with technology

Postby Community Editor » Fri Feb 08, 2019 10:02 am

Digipals, which helps older people cope with new technology, is running a series of drop-in session around Wandsworth this year.

The service is run by Age UK Wandsworth, with funding from the council’s Wandsworth Grant Fund.

Digipals is a volunteer-run service which offers drop-in sessions in local libraries across the borough.

The digipals can offer friendly support on a variety of different subjects such as setting up and using email, using the internet to search for information and using social media.

The sessions are drop-in so there is no need to book and people can come once for help on something specific, or come every week and follow a course.

Attendees can use the library computers or bring their own laptop, tablet or smartphone.

The next sessions are:
Feb 13th 10-12 Southfields Library
Feb 20th 10-12 Roehampton Library
Feb 26th 10-12 Tooting Library
March 6th 10-12 Wandsworth Library
March 13th 10-12 Southfields Library
March 20th 10-12 Roehampton Library
March 26th 10-12 Tooting Library

As the service is growing, Age UK Wandsworth is also looking for more volunteers to become digipals.There is no need to be an IT professional, just computer literate, friendly and supportive. For more information contact volunteering@ageukwandsworth.org.uk.
