Who we are and what we do

ACE IT is an Edinburgh charity which helps older people learn digital 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, free, one-to-one coaching. ACE IT teams also regularly visit care homes to help residents learn and use digital devices for independence, inclusion, to help improve their wellbeing and for leisure. ACE IT also provides courses for specific groups in the community, for example people returning to work, or community organisations.
