They would like to offer basic digital skills learning to their tenants aged 55+, with a key focus on people over 65. The aim of this project is to help more people to get online and help reduce isolation and poverty. Tutor supportwill be secured from the the digital skills academy to help tenants develop the skills and confidence to use technology and the internet. The plan is to offer a mixture of informal group sessions for up to 8 people delivered in a café style atmosphere, with an option of 1 - 1 support as a follow up if needed. 10 sheltered housing developments have been identified across Edinburgh - each development will be offered a weekly, 3 hour learning session for a period of 10 weeks. The tutor will use tailored themes (hooks) based on the interest residents have expressed. The experienced tutors will then build in specific skills that will benefit our customers within the lessons such as security and staying safe online.
