Who we are and what we do

ACE IT is an Edinburgh charity which has been helping older people learn digital skills and get online since 2005. Older people are at risk of being excluded from our digital society – devices can be complicated, and technology can be daunting. Research shows that digital literacy in this age group substantially improves wellbeing, reduces isolation and combats loneliness.

We support people over 50 to use computers and other digital devices through one-to-one coaching, as well as outreach programmes in care homes and community locations. All of our services are free and can be accessed throughout Edinburgh. Contact us to book an appointment or find out more – just call 0131 667 2053 or email info@aceit.org.uk.
