Organisation aims and objectives

Silver City Surfers is a local charity which aims to help older people with modern technology for those aged over 55 within the City of Aberdeen and the North East of Scotland. We provide free tutoring and support on all forms of modern technology (e.g. laptops, iPads & other tablets, smartphones, digital cameras, etc) through mentoring and one-to-one support sessions provided by experienced volunteers. With more and more businesses and organisations going completely digital, the need for a safe, welcoming space to learn digital skills is needed more than ever and we are here for the people who need us most.
