Resources for Older People's Organisations in London

Age UK London has just launched a report outlining recommendations for getting more of the 2.1 million older people in London online.

View the report on the Age UK London website here. 

78% of Londoners aged over 75 are not online and a total of 661,000 people over the age of 55 in London have never used the internet; Wealth of the Web: Broadening Horizons Online tackles the issue of how to decrease these figures. Specific recommendations are made for older people themselves, the Age UK London Network, voluntary sector organisations, regional and local government, funders and those in the private sector.

The report was launched at an event organised by Positive Ageing in London attended by some 65 people including representatives from the Cabinet Office, Department for Work and Pensions, GLA, Ofcom, Lloyds Bank, IBM UK and Digital Unite as well as a wide range of academics, older people’s organisations and voluntary bodies.

AGEnda, the newsletter of the English Forums on Ageing, released its December edition.
