Silver Surfer - WebStewart Court, a Bield Retirement Housing development in West Calder, is looking for tech savvy volunteers to help expand activities offered to its tenants.

The West Lothian based development is looking for volunteers as part of its Silver Surfer Project, a project that aims to teach tenants how to stay connected to friends and family through the use of modern technology, such as PC’s and iPads.


Craig Meek, Manager at Stewart Court, said: “We are always looking for ways to enrich the lives of our tenants and the positive feedback we have already received regarding Silver Surfer tutors proves that they are incredibly beneficial for our tenants.


“What makes our Silver Surfer Project so special is that it offers our tenants a chance to learn new things at their own pace whilst opening up an entirely new digital world for them.


“These kind of projects are also great because they allow our tenants to keep in touch with friends and family via the likes of email and Skype, which we believe is really fantastic and incredibly important.”Bield


Days and times are flexible and Bield request that volunteers commit to a few hours a week in the afternoons or evenings for this role.

Bield is a registered charity that came from humble beginnings, starting out with just one development in Bo’Ness to become a major of a wide range of housing and services for around 20,000 older people across 23 local authority areas.
