Digital Buddies is an exciting collaboration between Pop Up Enterprises CIC, MTM Youth Services CIC and Saffron Housing Trust where young volunteers are trained to support older people living in sheltered schemes to improve their digital skills. Young people participate in weekly sessions where they socialise with older people and help them discover the benefits of being online.
Know Your Money is an independent financial comparison website that was launched in 2004. Run by a dedicated team, who’s goal is to provide clear, accurate and transparent comparisons for a wide range of financial products.
The Norwich based company kindly donated an Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8 Tablet to the Digital Buddies project. They are also supporting Olly Dawes, Senior Developer at Notice Media Ltd which owns and operates Know Your Money, to donate some of his time to assist with the delivery of the Digital Buddies sessions, which launch at Ogden Close, Wymondham on 19 February.
We’re extremely grateful for Know Your Money’s support of the Digital Buddies project. Their sponsorship will help more older people get to grips with the internet and new technology and will be a real boost for the project. We’re delighted that Olly Dawes will be attending the sessions to share his digital expertise alongside our young volunteers.
