IT-Tastic!! 01 Aug 2018

Our intention is that our existing community volunteers will run this project. We intend to run basic fun tutorials that will encourage peer to peer and cross generational learning between local residents and also within families. Our target audience is primarily the over 65 age range integrated with support and involvement from our younger school age residents. We want to support people who are both physically isolated but also feel isolated due to the barriers that a lack of IT knowledge can create between for example grandparents & grandchildren. The activities will include specific subject tutorials but also less formal drop in 'fix-it’ sessions. The sessions will run one or two afternoons a week after school. In order that we retain a level of flexibility within the building we plan to use portable IT devices such as ipad's and/or tablets. We would also use gaming equipment to encourage cross generational interaction through games commonly played by younger generations. We also plan to invite people to bring in their console's and games to the hall so that we could hold a games evening where people can challenge each other in a fun tournament type of idea. We would hope to encourage people to bring along their own devises with them so that they could continue learning at home and become familiar with their equipment. However, the equipment we require from this funding will allow people to allow those who cannot afford their own equipment, convince those who don’t currently own the equipment due to not feeling confident or not yet seeing the advantages of having one in their own home. To having a convenient option where there reliable an equipment at the hall ready and set up for them to start learning.

Connecting to our online Communities 01 Aug 2018

We would like to access some training for a number of network members to allow them to act as peer trainers. We would require the trainers to have access to a small number of tablets which they could use to deliver the training to the participants. We are aware that a barrier to people accessing the online world is that they do not have devices of their own and would be anxious about spending what for people on benefits would be a considerable amount of money on something that they were not confident they could use. We believe that if people have the opportunity to develop their confidence they will be more inclined to commit to the expense of purchasing a device to allow them to access the internet. We currently have 23 peer support networks across the central belt of Scotland and we would very much like to deliver a workshop to each of those networks. We believe that if we had a reasonable number of trained members we would readily deliver these workshops over the course of a year. The majority of our members have travel cards allowing them to travel free of charge across the country, they have a lot of spare time and by virtue of our ongoing work in communities we have access to a number of free or low cost venues in which we could deliver the workshops. We believe that peer message is a very strong message and that our membership will respond well to being offered support and guidance from others who they feel are in a similar situation to themselves and will be confident about asking questions of peers that they may not ask of a formal tutor/coach.

Let's Get Digital 01 Jun 2016

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.
