Archived Project: Digital Angels
Creating online and offline connections between older people in Leeds
Staff and volunteers assist older people to get online for the first time, supporting learners in their home and over the phone.
Digital tea parties in community centres and libraries introduce learners to each other – in person or via Skype – and help unlock the mystery of the World Wide Web.
With two project workers in post, and a good supply of devices available to use, Digitals Angels have been building a network in South Leeds so they can reach people who would benefit from gaining confidence online and off.
