Silver City Surfers – Aberdeen and North East Scotland
Silver City Surfers is a small local charity which aims to help older people with modern technology, thereby reducing loneliness and isolation for those aged over 55 within the City of Aberdeen and the North East of Scotland.
The project provides free tutoring and support on all forms of modern technology (e.g. laptops, iPads & other tablets, smartphones, digital cameras, etc) through mentoring and one-to-one support sessions provided by experienced volunteers. The charity encourages older adults to visit its sessions for advice about technology at home. These sessions are friendly and welcoming, providing regular social interaction – coffees and teas are offered creating the feel of an Internet Cafe.
In addition to its weekly programme, Silver City Surfers also runs other community projects and a series of very popular monthly technology information talks. Silver City Surfers was thrilled to be a finalist in the 2016 Scottish Charity Awards, in the Digital Dynamo category.
