Project Category: Registered charity
The Connect Online project recruits volunteers who are comfortable using and sharing technology to provide support and tuition to older people who may need help to stay in touch with family and friends or to maintain their independence. Volunteers help in group settings at Computer Clubs throughout Midlothian as well as offering home visits to housebound people or carers.
During lockdown our groups have moved to online sessions via Zoom with a follow up email summary of information on websites/apps etc. We are also offering one to one sessions via telephone or video call, often aimed at ensuring people can access other services now being offered online. Learning how to use Zoom is now a frequent topic!
