The Connect project continues to help older people to use computers and get online with the help of volunteers. Over the past few months we have been focusing on carers and have found that this project has an impactful and positive affect on these people. Here's what a few of our learners had to say...
At Action in rural Sussex (AirS) we are fortunate enough to have developed a great partnership with the University of Brighton, as we embark on a new and innovative project, supported by the Nominet Trust.
GRCC has been successfully running the Connect project since April 2011 with funding from the Nominet Trust. The aim of the project is to help anyone over the age of 55 and living in Gloucestershire to use a computer and get ‘online.’ Connect aims to help people, especially those living in the more rural areas of the county at whatever their level of ability and experience, to become more confident in using a computer and the internet.
OurHousing will be showcasing on 18th May at the most excellent 'HousingCamp' unconference, hosted by Thames Valley Housing. If you're a landlord or simply excited by the idea of 'tenant tech' then grab your free ticket now!
