The Age Friendly Island Digital Connectivity Steering Group has come together to create an Islandwide customer survey to find out more about the digital support needs of older residents.

The group is inviting everyone aged 50+ to complete the survey, whether or not they use digital technology.

The steering group has 17 organisations that are working to improve choices around being digitally connected and are focussing on access, support and raising awareness of what is available.

By completing the survey, people will guide what the access will look like, how the support can be given and where we can best raise awareness.

Kevin Berry, member of the Age Friendly Island Older Person’s Steering Group, encourages everyone to take part:

“Help us to help you by completing our survey giving your thoughts on how we can help to connect you to the full benefits of modern technology.”

Helen Lewis, Age Friendly Island Development Officer, says:

“This is an opportunity for organisations to better understand how they can best support people digitally, especially in light of coronavirus.”
