Who are we?
CommuniTech London is a registered charity that helps vulnerable and elderly people in local communities get the best out of their devices and the internet. Our aim is to answer people’s concerns, help them become more confident and create new opportunities to make their lives easier.
This is done through Tech & Tea: free, fortnightly, friendly and informal events. We gather tech-savvy volunteers that educate and advise though themed Tech Talks and workshops. They inspire attendees to learn new ways of using their devices and take them through practical examples to help them acquire tech skills. We think an informal chat with a friendly volunteer over a cup of tea and a biscuit can really help take the stress out of learning about tech, as well as building up community spirit.
