Let's Get Digital (360G-SCVO-a11b000000DGFdqAAH)

Participants will be blind or partially sighted older people residing in any of their 13 target LAAs. Basic Digital Skills training will be delivered in small groups or 1-2-1 covering a number of topics. Training will be delivered locally through Peer Support Groups, specific to the needs of the person and will use either their own technology or we will lend a tablet for participants to practice on and help them to decide what to buy. As part of this training, the team will demonstrate alternative technology to broaden their knowledge and options in using their new digital skills. Let's Get Digital will underpin all of their services for older people; the training will roll out across all projects to ensure an additional layer of skills development opportunities for service users and support for staff, along with volunteer skills development.

Recipient Org: Description Visibility was established in 1859 to improve the lives of blind and partially sighted people of all ages across Glasgow and the West of Scotland – since then, we have grown to become the leading sight loss charity for the west of Scotland. We develop and deliver a wide range of advice, support and local direct services to help those who are affected by a visual impairment to feel less isolated, more confident and independent. We also offer support and information to families and carers of people affected by sight loss and also to other health and social care professionals across the voluntary and statutory sectors. Throughout the West of Scotland, we reach and engage with over 3,000 people every year from across all groups, backgrounds and communities. We listen and respond to people affected by visual impairment, encouraging a culture and environment which promotes choice and independence for all
