Digital Age Project Launch
On November 20, 2012, the Digital Age Partnership officially launched a new four year scheme funded by the Big Lottery Fund to address digital exclusion experienced by older people living in sheltered accommodation.
The kick-off event for the Digital Age Project was hosted by Newington Housing Association at their Camberwell Court location. It was well attended by a mix of community and voluntary groups, older people from local housing schemes, and housing association professionals. The launch featured speeches from Alison Fraser, Senior Head of Funding for the Big Lottery Fund, Lucinda McMurran of the NI Federation of Housing Associations, and Diarmuid Moore from the WEA. We were also treated to a command performance from budding acting talent Pat Cunningham who is also the chair of the Newry U3A.
