Age UK -new Digital Loan Library to combat loneliness
Age UK has
received funding to purchase some ipads which can be loaned out to elderly

also allocated an IT volunteer who will support them with an hour's session per
week. Due to lockdown restrictions this is done by telephone and video call
rather than a face to face visit.

Community Connectors can make referrals to AgeUK on your client's behalf, so if
you are supporting anyone who is struggling to get online and meets this
