A joint collaboration project with Silent Cities and two other Sheffield SSE fellows: Neighbours Can Help and Silence Breakers.

The project aims to train young people to train older people how to get online and to access services to help their independence. This video is PART 2 - where you can see how they all got on!

Please see PART 1 before watching this video, which gives a glimpse into the hard work the young people did in developing the training materials and preparing as trainers.

More than just a training course, we are also supplying each older person with a refurbished computer to use in their own home.

The project is funded by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council.

Neighbours Can Help (John Pickin and David Child) are managing the project, and hope that improved access to IT for disadvantaged groups will assist access to their project, which is a website to introduce neighbours to each other and to service providers so that they can help each other.

Silent Cities (Justine Gaubert) proposed the intergenerational approach, and are responsible for the training delivery and filming.

Silence Breakers (Jay Baker) are responsible for refurbishing used computers for the older people to use in their homes.

Maltby Academy have been invaluable partners with us on the project, with teacher, Steve Hatherley, being instrumental in the delivery of the programme.

Thanks too to Maltby Model Village for their support of the programme.

The second course is fully booked, but the third course, to be held in March, is still open to social services clients over the age of 60 in the Maltby Area. Please contact me for details.
