We believe technology could be a great way for older people to make connections that prevent loneliness. We also recognise that they have concerns: safety, learning new skills and thinking they don't need it. The trust that readers have in Yours means we are perfectly placed to change their minds. We recognise their fears but we'll show them how technology can make life better. We will gently guide them through the process and give them great reasons why they should be online. We are looking for a partner who shares our vision to end loneliness to help fund the campaign
