I work for Age Concern New Zealand. We run a national visiting service, plus other social connection programmes, and are testing a Social Connector model currently in various locations round the country. One of the activities that is working well in many areas is tech connect sessions where school or college students work one to one with older adults to help them learn functions on their tech devices.
