This area has a large population aged over 65 and being able to use smart phones and the internet is a great way of addressing isolation and making people independent. Please see below Information of upcoming events, for members and friends of the Positive Ageing Council.
Digital Champion Training event
Hi – We are running a free Digital Champion training and networking event on Wednesday 6th July for any individuals and organisations that are involved in supporting people to use computers and the internet. It would be great to have a pool of people who wold be willing to be local digital champions and help people with their phones or that tablet they were given for Christmas or a birthday. It is was a lovely experience for to be shown a video of a woman’s grandchild on her smart phone – priceless. Anyone interested in doing the training on 6th July please book via this link. F feel free to share.

Ageing Well in Lewisham is a small registered charity, founded in 1999, that provides support and befriending services to people aged 50+ living in south Lewisham in south east London. A small staff team provides individual support to help people access services that will improve their quality of life and help them to maintain their independence living in their own home. We assist clients to access transport to enable older people to attend tutor led groups in their local community where they can share an activity, learn a new skill or join an exercise group and make new friends, helping to reduce social isolation and improve their physical and mental health and quality of life.
