Itea and Biscuits

For a wee while now I’ve wanted to something volunteery – and like buses the opportunities all come along at once!   I’m enjoying my work with my local housing association to try and raise awareness of how to get involved in the community (everything from mystery shopping to newsletters  seems to be available).  In September, I’ll be busyish getting started with the UKRC’s “Ingenious Women” scheme, as well as doing a bit of formal online learning about social media and marketing, but I’m intrigued by the idea of Age UK’s Itea and Biscuits.

Run as part of the RaceOnline2012 programme, this event runs from 20-26 September and is organised by AgeUK (the new joined up version of Age Concern and Help the Aged).   It seems a great way of helping older people get experience with not just computers, but also digital cameras, phones etc  http://www.ageuk.org.uk/work-and-learning/technology-and-internet/itea-and-biscuits/.

I think there are opportunities to get involved on a more regular basis, and this is something I might investigate once I’m a bit less busy after March.
