Digipals by Age UK Wandsworth
Friendly digital support for older people from Age UK Wandsworth. Digipals is a service which offers friendly digital support to older people in Wandsworth. The service aims to enable older people to benefit from digital connectivity whether that be shopping online, accessing information and entertainment on the internet or connecting with people via emails/video calls/social media. We also now have a bank of tablets with paid-for 4G connectivity that we are able to loan for periods of up to 3 months.
During this period, the user will be offered a minimum of 3 tutorials with our friendly team of staff and volunteers. For those who cannot come to in person sessions, these will be conducted via secure remote support software (already installed on the devices) and the telephone. Then, towards the end of the 3 months, we will be able to offer advice on buying a device and wifi/data packages available. Continued support will then be available either remotely or in one of our group sessions.
