Every Friday afternoon is an IT drop-in afternoon – 2 to 5 pm as usual
The drop-in is a weekly grassroots event offering digital beginners and learners help and support with phones, tablets, laptops — and understanding the Internet so that we can use it safely and sensibly.
And of course, it’s a social event – so people who have no interest at all in digital technology are very welcome.
We have been quite busy for the last few weeks, but we always have space for a few more people.
Run entirely by older people
The drop-in is a community asset run by local older people, for everyone.
We have no age limits. Current age range is 4 to 91 (though most are 60+).
We do not recognise borough boundaries.
No targets. No questionnaires. No remote-control management. Nobody is a client. Everybody is, or can be, a contributor (just being there is a contribution).
All you have to do is come – and then hit the buzzer next to the front door.
