Spring Online is a week-long celebration that builds on the success of Silver Surfers’ Day which is now in its tenth year. During the week hundreds of people and organisations across the UK will open their doors and invite older people to come along for a digital taster session. Silver Surfers’ Day will take place on Friday 20 May as a celebratory end to the week’s activities.
To celebrate those who are championing better digital awareness by holding a Spring Online event, a cash prize of £1,000 will be awarded to help with developing computer learning in the winner’s area or centre. All those who register an event will be eligible to enter and the winner will be judged on creativity, overall enthusiasm and the stories of how people are affected.
Often, the main barriers for older people are lack of confidence and understanding. All they need is someone to get them started, show them the basic steps, encourage them and make it fun! Holding a Spring Online taster session can really help.
