Helping older folk become tech savvy in Warwick

A COMMUNITY centre cafe in Warwick is helping older people get tech savvy.

The Gap’s Computer Cafe is launching a new six-week programme, from Monday May 9 between 10.30 am to 11.30 am, of one-to-one computer support.

Over 55’s can enjoy a cuppa and overcome any IT anxieties about the likes of smart phone and tablets at the Oakwood Grove centre

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

The aim is to help older adults enjoy the benefits of technology to improve their lives and independent living.

The sessions, which are funded by Warwickshire County Council’s Mental Wellbeing and Resilience Fund, are free, including tea and coffee, with an optional £2 donation towards The Gap charity. The first session will be an enrolment day.
