Give your friends a taste of technology with Age UK

Created by Charlotte in Being You, Technology



Age UK’s Itea and biscuits week provides the opportunity for people in later life to get a taste of the benefits that digital technologies such as computers and the internet, mobile phone and digital cameras can really offer.

 

The next itea and biscuits week will take place 19 – 25 September 2011.

 

The week will see hundreds of local, friendly hands on taster events being run to help your friends develop the skills, confidence and most importantly, interest in technology and the internet over a cup of tea. With local event holders signposting participants to ongoing internet courses in their area delivered by Age UK’s and their national and regional partners, the campaign will help people to take those first key vital steps on their digital journey.

 

Age UK would love your help in pointing your friends in need of a boost of confidence in the digital department to their local event.  You can find these by using this event finder.

 

Feedback from previous participants:

 

  • ‘Excellent event, good equipment, very friendly, helpful and supportive tutors.’ – John, 55
  • ‘I feel that it’s very important that every possible avenue should be open to older people to keep them up to date with technology and days such as this are a great idea’ – Rita, 75
  • ‘Excellent taster for complete novices’ – Alena, 79
