Silver City Surfers is a charity which aims to help older people with modern technology, thereby reducing loneliness and isolation for those aged over 55 within the City of Aberdeen and the North East of Scotland. We provide free tutoring and support on all forms of modern technology (e.g. laptops, iPads & other tablets, phones, digital cameras, etc) through mentoring and one-to-one support sessions provided by experienced volunteers. It is important for us to make these sessions friendly and welcoming thus providing regular social interaction - coffees and teas are offered thus creating the feel of an Internet Cafe. Please contact us for more information. We would be delighted to help you.

The topic of our next talk is Web & Browser Basics. The talk will explain what the Internet, the World Wide Web and a Browser are in simple terms and explore why seniors might want to make use of them. There will be a demonstration of browser basics, how to navigate websites, how to determine if a website is secure, how to use search engines to find what you want and will conclude with examples of websites that are useful for seniors. Free teas/coffees are being generously provided by Satrosphere and Silver City Surfers tutors will be available after the talk to setup Internet Telephony on attendees own equipment should they care to take that along with them to the talk. If you have any queries about this even please contact us.
