GOOD NEWS!! On 12 January 2022, FWA-UK was awarded a grant from National Lottery Awards for All (A4A) for one of our projects called, ‘A Helping Hand to the Elderly (65+) and the Vulnerable in Newham, London.’ FWA-UK will run computer skills workshops for digitally excluded elderly, in Newham, London, who are housebound, ill, and lonely, enabling them to participate fully in society.

The Project starts on 14 March 2022 and ends on 10 March 2023.

The COVID-19 pandemic has meant vast changes to how public services are delivered – doctors, schools, banking have all moved online. The FWA-UK project will enable participants, such as the elderly, to adapt to this new reality, equipping them to use digital services such as NHS appointments and online banking, thereby increasing their resilience and ability to live independently.

If you are from Newham and interested to join the FWA-UK computer training course, please send us an email – contact@fwa-uk.com. The association Project Manager will get in touch with you.

A big thank you to the Lotto players who make possible the funding of National Lottery’s charitable projects.
