As you will more than likely be aware, the country will be coming together virtually to remember those who gave so much in World War Two, and to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe.
Although we are having to remain at home, there is still lots you can do. Visit our website to see how you can take part and remember to send your photos and videos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Receive over £600 worth of devices to trial our innovative technology scheme
Are you, or do you care for someone over the age of 55 who lives in Shropshire with a broadband connection, or know someone who does? If so, you could take part in a technology pilot scheme and receive over £600 worth of equipment for FREE!
The ACTIVAGE Shropshire scheme is being launched this week on 4th May 2020 and is offering a technology package worth over £600 that can help support people to stay independent, safe and active for longer, especially if their carers or family aren’t close by.
This includes a free Samsung watch and smartphone which will be posted to them. Also included in the tech package are *home sensors. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, these will be issued later as they require installation.
ACTIVAGE is a hugely exciting project for Shropshire, launching at a time when people need something to look forward to, encouragement to keep moving, keep active, and if you can, enjoy the outdoors.
Although some people will be shielding, all eligible people (those over 55) should consider signing up for ACTIVAGE. Keeping healthy through this COVID crisis,and keeping connected through technology is of huge importance to supporting our communities.
Through technology, this programme helps people monitor their activity levels, keep connected to others and for those with health conditions, it will help people use Apps to monitor their health.
There is no cost to take part in this initiative and what’s great is that you get to keep all the equipment when you complete the scheme.
