New! Computers and a Cuppa

Community Hertsmere working in partnership with Affinity Sutton are launching ‘Computers and a Cuppa’ to promote and support the use of digital technologies by older people.

Sessions will start on Tuesday 4 July from 2pm – 4pm at our Outreach Hub at Radlett Community Centre.   and will be held every first and third Tuesdays,. The funding from Affinity Sutton has allowed this initiative to be held in Community Herstsmere’s community hubs in Borehamwood, Radlett and Potters Bar.

Getting people online not only offers practical assistance, but a whole host of benefits such as improved attention, communication and memory skills and less dependence on medication. Engaging the elderly in learning activities, improves the quality of their lives and reduces the costs of health and social care.

Stephen Craker, Chief Executive Community Hertsmere says "We are delighted to be working with Affinity Sutton to provide a much needed service for older people. A lot of older learners say that learning gives them confidence and a second chance to learn things they were not able to do before. We really wanted to increase older people’s services across Hertsmere and the funding will allow us to do that."
