The Policy Exchange today announced that internet training could cut pensioner loneliness.
Andy Kaye, Head of Policy at Independent Age said:
"Encouraging and enabling people to go online could be one really useful means of tackling loneliness – but it’s not the only way. We mustn’t forget that it’s really important older people still have a choice about how they access public services so they are not only available online. To those without technology skills a trip to the local post office or real human contact is just as important. We are members of the Keep it Posted campaign which wants people to have a choice in how they receive bills and written communication”.
