Silver Surfers Day is here again!
Spring Online Silver Surfers Day, the national campaign that aims to get older people using computers and the Internet at thousands of events across the UK, is due next month (16-20 May).
Businesses, organisations and individuals are invited to run digital awareness sessions to help. Events can be held anywhere from sitting rooms to boardrooms, school halls to communal lounges, libraries to UK online centres. The main purpose of each session is to involve computers, the Internet and older people in some way but each organiser has the freedom to decide how.
A marketing toolkit is available for every registered event holder to help with promotion. The kit includes posters, leaflets, appointment cards and signs. There’s also a cash prize of £1,000 to help with developing future computer learning activities.
