Computer help and advice for older folk in Warwick

COMPUTER help is being offered to Warwick’s older residents

Over 55s are being offered the chance to tackle IT nerves with free computer skills sessions at The Gap’s drop-in Computer Cafe.

The drop-in sessions, catering to individual needs, run at the centre at 39 Oakwood Grove, on Monday mornings, for eight weeks from February 7, from 10.30am to 11.30am.

Participants can bring along tablets, phones, and any questions, and learn how to improve email and online shopping skills, how to download apps, and use Zoom and Facebook.

The relazed one to one sessions will be run by retired volunteers John and Jean Morgan, and assisted by John Radford.

The sessions are free, including tea and coffee, with an optional £2 donation.

Jean said: “Many older people can be daunted by using computers and connecting to the internet. They worry about pressing the wrong buttons, scams, and their information being stolen.

” As older adults ourselves, we understand that and can guide people through a range of questions and help them to launch safely into a whole new world of technology”.
