Age UK Kensington & Chelsea Digital Library
The Age UK Kensington & Chelsea Digital Library aims to support people to get digitally connected and support people to stay in touch with their friends and family.
If you have a device that doesn’t have capacity for video calls or a weak connection or you do not have either a device or internet connection, Age UK may be able to help.
You can borrow an Ipad or a laptop for a couple of months to test if technology can help you to be socially more active from home.
Also the simplest one-button computer is available too, it is called Komp and is used for video calls. You will get 1:1 support to help get set up and to learn how to use any of the devices. They will also support you to purchase your own device later on, looking at available low-cost options. The service is free and there is no fee for borrowing the device.
Age UK Kensington & Chelsea may be able to support you with the internet connection but each case will need to be looked at individually.
If you are 55 and over and would like to find out more about this project, please give Age UK a call on: 020 8969 9105 and ask for Proscovia Mawanda.
