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. 

Our Volunteers

We would like to thank Bill King and Chris Belous, our volunteer photographers, for many of our photos on this website.
