People who may be isolated or lonely can make connections by taking part in a technology drop-in session at The Clanfield Centre.

Bosses at the Community First-run centre are tackling social isolation by working with people interested in improving confidence through technology.

They have launched free drop-in sessions for people who are struggling to use their smartphones, laptops, iPads and similar devices.

The one-hour sessions from 1.30pm every Monday are part of a programme of events which aim to engage with South of Butser residents who may not otherwise get out and about.

Natasha Glover, centre manager, said they work hard to provide activities and classes for all ages, with walking football, trivia sessions and coffee mornings being part of the programme.

She said: “Not only will the sessions bring people together, but they will also help older adults to stay connected to their friends and family.”
