Since May 2017 we have given away 139 tablet computers to learners age 55 and over in the local area.  With support from Awards for All and Building Connections we have been able to deliver free I.T. training to over 170 older people during this period, teaching them how to use a tablet computer, send and receive emails, Skype friends, use Facebook, shop online, download apps and stay safe online.  The Give IT a Go project brings people together in small groups, encouraging socialisation, both during and after the course finishes and is proving to be very popular. 

Bill (81) had never used a computer before coming on this course.  He said that his wife was very good with I.T and his son embraces technology.  Bill’s sister-in-law who attended a prior course said “go and learn, it won’t hurt you so I thought if we’ve got to go with technology, let’s go.  It’s silly I was so against it because it is such a useful tool.  Education wise it is fantastic.  Before my wife died she said “carry on living, do whatever you want to do”.  Now I use YouTube and Facebook.  My grandson has a son and daughter and I can see a lot of their photos on Facebook.  I listen to songs on YouTube from 60 years ago when I was in the forces and it’s brilliant”.
