Positive Ageing in London will be launching Age UK London’s research report titled ‘Wealth of the web: broadening horizons online’ which deals with barriers to and motivation for older people going online. It also includes recommendations for older people as well as recommendations for organisations, corporates, funders and policymakers.

The event will take place on January 27 at the Coin Street Conference Centre at 430 pm.

Nigel Lewis, Chair of the Age Action Alliance digital inclusion group, will chair the event. The Age Action Alliance Digital Inclusion Group believes that the digital inclusion of older people is critical not just for older people themselves but for the government and wider society. Key government policy areas are heavily reliant on citizens having digital skills to access, participate in, and influence services and activities.

The event will include a drinks reception providing all those attending with the chance for networking with others closely involved with digital inclusion.
