"A lot of the time, residents are asked for their opinions on issues through online surveys, so if you can’t get online you can’t have a say."

Our project started with an engagement phase, so we really understood what was needed locally.

Local residents told us they wanted to learn more about IT and do this as part of a social group, so that’s how IT with Tea came about.

“I have learnt lots of new information on the computer, and met a very friendly group.” - Steve Thompson - Resident

This activity helps older residents to get online, giving them a louder voice. People also said transport issues made it difficult to get out, so we worked with Boston Community Transport Scheme to give residents transport vouchers.

The project has a steering group of local residents working together to make sure older people have a say in how the area develops.”
