Assisting older people in Strathaven and Stonehouse to improve and enhance their digital skills (360G-SCVO-a11b000000EtVwzAAF)

This project seeks to develop a range of digital classes for older people in the rural communities of Strathaven and Stonehouse. Following the successful introduction of a befriending and handy person service two years ago, and following a brief pilot in 2016, they have identified a need for the delivery of a range basic digital skills classes to include, smartphones, tablets, basic computing skills, laptop use. Three digital classes in the community will be delivered each week - 4 x 10 week sessions in a year. Staff and volunteers, as part of their initial induction and ongoing training, will be supported in the use of digital technology and given the knowledge on how to access services such as health, social care, pensions which they can pass on to all clients, their families and carers. Volunteers will be developed as digital champions locally; they will continue to assist older people and, with the support of the organisation and collaboration with key stakeholders, further enhance digital education and access for the community.
