Tech and Tea delivered in Salford Community Leisure venues

“It’s been brilliant, I’ve learned new skills and I’ve even helped other people.”

Tech and Tea has been commissioned through Salford Public Health to develop a programme of informal
digital skills development across Salford for residents over the age of 65 years alongside helping individuals
identify ways in which they can improve their own health and wellbeing.

By using community venues such as those managed by Salford Community Leisure (SCL) we have seen not
only the impact on the individuals accessing the course but also the added value for SCL as the library at the
Sports Village and the Height library are now recognised centres of community tech learning and support.

This also supports the council’s aim of becoming a digital city, providing digital inclusion for some of the city’s
most excluded residents(older people).

This report sets out what has been achieved so far and highlights some of our success stories.
