Health & wellbeing programmes

Our Renfrewshire network of clubs is an opportunity older adults meet people, socialise and laugh whilst investing in their physical and mental health through life-affirming wellbeing projects.

Digital Participation

Throughout Renfrewshire

Be a Silver Surfer

The internet is part of everyday life for most people. We know this is often not the case for many older people who have not grown up with the technology and may feel unsure how it works. Here at Roar we actively encourage all older adults to use a smartphone, tablet or laptop to stay connected to family, friends and the outside world.

Technology offers a vast array of tools to improve social isolation, from online access to your daily newspaper to reading your favourite books on a tablet. From joining a chat group on your smartphone to storing all your important telephone numbers. We believe in keeping it simple, with basic knowledge of how to use your device and get the most from it.

Essential Skills and Training to ensure no one gets left behind.

We are on a mission to ensure older adults in Renfrewshire can access the skills and training they need to use desktop and or mobile devices. It is our ambition for all our older clients to be able to confidently use different digital services and mobile devices. From smartphones to tablets, from desktop computers to laptops, we believe everyone can learn and gain the benefits of accessing the world online.

We need your help to become a Digital Champion. If you are able to volunteer your time to help teach an older person how to use technology we want to hear from you.
