Get Involved: Improve Health & Wellbeing

Technology is now a huge part of day-to-day living - whether we like it or not. With this technology comes huge opportunities to make our lives easier, improve our health and wellbeing and allow us to live independently for longer.

It can help you carry out everyday tasks without needing to leave your home, make new friends and stay in better contact with old ones.

We believe in the power of technology so much that we’ve set a bold vision that by 2021 older people in Essex will be the most tech confident in the world.

Through Digital Boomers we want to help over 55s in Essex improve their health and wellbeing through using technology enabling them to live more independent lives. At the same time we also want to improve the digital skills of the health and social care workforce.
