Using New Technology to:

  • alleviate isolation and loneliness;
  • increasing confidence & skills to use mobile phones, internet & social media tools;
  • reaching & connecting older people to local communities and support; increasing social connections & improving physical and mental wellbeing

This project builds upon our existing ConnectingWomen2Communities project by using ‘digital and remote service’ engagement, delivery methods and tools such as Whats App, Messenger, Facebook, Webnair, Zoom, Video Conferencing, Podcasts etc to deliver interactive online activities for older men and women from Asian & other BME communities, aged 50 and over, in Ealing, Hounslow and in Slough.

Project targets older people who:
• are lonely or isolated

Project ACTIVITIES include:
• Supporting older people over 50 to use basic DMIT tools, accessible on mobile telephones, to learn and use basic WhatsApp, social media, video/audio tools to get connected, participate and secure support.
