Digital Friends

Digital Friends

Funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, Digital Friends is a four month long project designed to support older people and those who are isolated across North Lanarkshire

The project will pair a volunteer who is reasonably confident in using smart phones, tablets and laptops, with someone who would like to learn how to access life online and a whole new world of possibilities.

VANL is recruiting volunteers on behalf of four established befriending organisations in North Lanarkshire and we are looking for enthusiastic, tech-savvy individuals with a desire to help others and support their community to access all the benefits that the internet brings. You don’t need to be an IT expert or professional; you just need a phone or a digital device and internet access.

For more information or to note your expression of interest, please contact VANL: info@vanl.co.uk (including the reference ‘Digital Friends’) / Tel: 01236 748011
