Help Sue access literature on her tablet
Bridgend / Strabane, Co. Tyrone
Make a difference today Open a world of technology for Sue and boost her confidence Our member Sue has a tablet but needs some assistance in accessing all the features, she would love a volunteer who could point her in the right direction and open up a whole new world of opportunities! Sue also loves to read and used to love reading a good book, however, since her eyesight has declined she struggles to see the words. Sue lives alone and doesn't get many visitors, she has lost the confidence to go out by herself and as a result finds herself increasingly lonely and isolated.
