In the next couple of weeks (16-20 May) there’s an event called Spring Online Silver Surfers Day.
This is a national campaign with the intention of getting older people to use computers and the Internet. There will be thousands of events across the UK.
Anyone including businesses, organisations and individuals have been invited to run ‘digital awareness sessions’, to help older people get to grips with the medium.
The events can be held anywhere, from people’s homes to school halls to boardrooms or libraries. There’s no fixed agenda for organisers, but each one will be supported with a marketing toolkit. This includes leaflets, appointment cards, and posters.
There’s also a cash prize of £1,000 to help with developing future computer learning activities!
