HOPE Goes Digital Project

During the Covid19 pandemic our normal services were redesigned and adapted to best provide support to people, in North Ayrshire, where it was most needed during these difficult times.  This included providing telephone befriending calls and remote digital support, as well as a digital activities programme.

We have now been able to restart some of our activities within the local community and throughout North Ayrshire. Our main aim is to help people aged 50+ remain independent within their own homes for longer. We want to help them enjoy life in the company of others through the provision of numerous services ie social activities, outings, interests, health & fitness classes as well as information and advice. We make available our extensive information library to ensure they are assisted in making informed choices on all aspects of their advancing years.

Our HOPE Goes Digital project provides a range of services including:

  • One-to-one befriending
  • Telephone befriending
  • Digital support and training
  • Digital activities including a quiz and ‘tea & natter’
  • Social outings
  • Weekly lunch club
  • Social activities
  • Interest classes
  • Health & fitness classes
  • Information library and information talks
