Who are we?
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. We provide 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. It is important for us to make these sessions friendly and welcoming thus providing regular social interaction – coffees and teas are offered thus creating the feel of an Internet Cafe.
Silver City Surfers was recently profiled by Digital Scotland. Digital Scotland created and published case studies describing the various journeys some of our learners have taken into the world of technology. You can read these individual case studies yourself and find out more about our work in the city.
Please contact us for more information. We would be delighted to help you.
