Original story:

N Live is launching a bid to use the web to help elderly people connect with the community.

Social media and the internet are great tools for reaching out to people, especially if your mobility is not great.

But if you are not used to Facebook and Twitter, or have never blogged, it can seem like there are endless new things to learn before you begin to get to know people online.


N Live wants to take the pain out of that with fun and friendly courses to introduce people to the web and all its wonders.

We have put in a bid to the Aviva Community Fund and we need your votes to help make our courses happen.

Follow the link below and just take a few minutes to vote for us and our Silver Side Up courses will be on their way!
