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 is thrilled to be a finalist in this year’s Scottish Charity Awards, in the Digital Dynamo category. It is simply wonderful that our volunteers and their generous service to helping older people avoid being left behind in this digital landscape has been recognised.
Thank you so much for your support!
Silver City Surfers was delighted to find that one of its volunteer tutors, Graham Castle, won a national Digital Hero Award in 2015. View the video, produced by TalkTalk, that reflects the work of the charity.
