Gransnet Local, a social network for over-50s, has launched a service which includes forums, information on local events, issues and volunteering opportunities as well as ways to meet new people both online and offline, aimed to reduce the loneliness of the older generation.
According to government’s digital champion Martha Lane Fox: “Many older people in the UK are still not online, leaving them potentially isolated and at a disadvantage. I welcome the launch of Gransnet Local, which will offer an incentive to people to get online to find out what’s happening in their area and connect with others, and take the friendship and support that Gransnet already offers into a wider community.”
