Who we are and what we do
ACE IT is an Edinburgh charity which helps older people learn computer skills. Older people are at risk of being excluded from our digital society. Devices can be complicated and technology can be daunting.
ACE IT staff and volunteers support people over 50 to use computers and other digital devices through tailored 1:1 coaching. ACE IT teams also regularly visit care homes to help residents learn and use IT for independence, inclusion, to help improve their wellbeing and for leisure. From time to time, ACE IT provides IT courses for specific groups in the community, for example women returning to work, or community organisations.
We exist to advance the knowledge and connectivity of older people in Edinburgh, through IT coaching and empowerment, to improve wellbeing, independence, and active involvement as citizens.
