Viewpoint housing association – an elderly tenant on videocall with Tap into IT

Viewpoint housing association and local charity and training provider Tap into IT have partnered up to enhance tenants' digital skills. 

Edinburgh’s Lord Provost recently celebrated the achievements of the 400 members of the city’s older generations who have learned invaluable tech skills thanks to Tap into IT – 167 of which are Viewpoint tenants.

Councillor Frank Ross will present certificates to representatives of users and volunteers from each of the three computer clubs that have been part of the Viewpoint programme. This will take place at a birthday tea party in Viewpoint’s housing on Gillespie Crescent and will mark the first anniversary of Tap into IT registering as a charity.   He will also launch the charity’s new website.
