Spring Online

SpringOnlineLogoSpring Online is Digital Unite’s national digital literacy campaign for older people. The award winning campaign is held every April – in 2013, 22-26th April.
Local people and organisations as diverse as schools, businesses, housing providers, Age UK groups, UK Online centres, libraries, shops, businesses and community organisations open their doors to older people and run hands-on digital taster sessions.
Spring Online is now in its 12th year – it started as ‘Silver surfer day’ in 2002, and became a week-long event in 2011. In 2012, 2,000 events all around the UK helped 30,000 people get online, many for the first time. Grants are available towards running events, with guides and training materials online.
Digital Unite also trains organisations and individuals through their Digital Champion programme, for which bursaries are available from Digital Unite Trust.
Home visit tuition is also available through a network of local Tutors who Digital Unite recruit, train and support.
