An IT company is teaching people how to use their computers and mobile phones as part of a campaign to combat loneliness.
The initiative that teaches those who find it difficult to communicate with friends and family to
use technology to help them stay connected launched on September 1.
‘Kazzoo in the Community’ aims to benefit the elderly, disabled, or people who just aren’t
confident with technology and may have experienced loneliness during lockdown.
Kazzoo IT will be providing 90 minutes of one-to-one IT lessons and general tech support to
those who would benefit from being able to use technology to prevent loneliness or simply to
deal with the new digital age.
Chris Cain, who owns Kazzoo IT, said: “It’s for people who are isolated or on their own with
no friendship group, for grandparents who have people they’d love to speak to, and anyone
who is frightened of technology and doesn’t know how to use it.
“We want to enable them to search the internet, do their shopping online, and talk to their
family and friends on a tablet, phone or computer because that interaction could make their
day and improve their wellbeing.”
