Chair – David Bell
Retired financial services planning and project manager. I recognise how being “online” can benefit older people, and hope to use my skills to help ACE IT thrive.
Personal and professional experience tell me technology enriches life and offers many benefits to people as they get older.
Deputy CEO at Sustrans. IT has an increasingly important role to play in everyday life but being confident and equipped to use it is not something we all share.
I’m a commercial lawyer who enjoys simplifying the complicated and helping empower people to get things done.
The UN recognises digital inclusion as a basic human right and encourages nations to nurture this. I am proud to support ACE IT in its role in ensuring this goal is achieved in Scotland.
I recognise the increasing importance of organisations like ACE IT that help older people develop skills in response to “digital channels” becoming the norm for both social interaction and customer support.
Volunteers are key members of our team and their contribution is absolutely crucial to the service.
We would like to thank Bill King and Chris Belous, our volunteer photographers, for many of our photos on this website.
