Helping the elderly with computers

Added: 05/08/2015

Are you a whizz on a tablet computer?

MAECare are setting up a new project aimed at helping and encouraging older people living in the Leeds 17 area of Leeds to use a tablet computer to connect with family members and friends.

We are looking for volunteers who would be prepared to support older people with using tablets.  Support may be around familiarising people with how a tablet and computer works, training them on using Skype or Facebook or perhaps showing complete beginners how to use a tablet and access the internet.

Do you have skills that you can share?  Would you be interested in supporting the project by offering coaching to an older person? For more information or to request an information pack please contact:
