Empowercare’s Digital Ambassadors providing digital training for over 65’s in Kent

Empowercare has a network of volunteer Digital Ambassadors, ready to help Kent residents get to grips with technology. Whether it is making the most out of a device, or learning to use some devices from scratch, the Digital Ambassadors can help you with a range of new skills.

You can learn how to:

Do online shopping
– Make video calls to your family and friends
– Access community services (such as libraries)
– Do anything in an online setting you think would be useful

The service is completely free and Empowercare is now able to offer 1-2-1 in person training if you are happy to do so, or training can be provided remotely too. Participants must be aged 65+, or 50+ with at least one chronic health condition. The scheme is taking applications now, and will be running for 12 months until June 2022.

The adjoining device loan scheme includes a 12-week loan of a KARA device, Samsung tablets with internet included, or smart speakers.
