DONATE YOUR OLD PHONE NOW
We are collecting old tech that local people have laying around the house, in bottom drawers. It just needs to be up to date enough to use Zoom and Facebook for a beginner.
We will then wipe it clean, both in germs and in memory, PAT check it, and then load on Facebook and Zoom aps.
We already know people who are on their own who want to try these new things, as long as we keep it simple - we will give them your phone FREE. We will help them get a 30 day contract SIM card, and get them started with some basics for that phone. If they have access to wifi, like from a kind neighbour, we will give any tablets we are given away to them too.
Our partners have offered to run some beginners courses for older people to use both Zoom and Facebook.
We are linked with HD8 Network who are running Facebook Chat Rooms for people on their own - a social chat whilst people are cooking and eating. We hope more people can join these chat rooms.
That's it - recycling that removes loneliness from local people and it does not cost you or them anything.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO HELP REFURB, TECH-SUPPORT AND TRAIN
