Galloway’s has a new technology service to support those living with sight loss to make the most of all the types of current technology on offer.  If you want basic information and impartial advice regarding the use or purchase of new equipment, then we are now in a position to help. 

Understanding technology can make everyday life much easier, but knowing where to start can be tricky; our volunteers and experts are here to work with you and can give you the information and knowledge you require.

We will be hosting ‘Talking Tech’ drop-in days at all four of our sites on a regular monthly basis.  Should you need help or advice with your tablet, smart phone or laptop, or want to see the latest technology that comes on stream, then our Tech days are for you!  We can help you become more independent and confident in getting online and keeping up to date with the latest Tech, whilst helping you keep abreast of the latest apps, news, books, sports and hobbies.  Galloway’s Talking Tech drop-in days are for you if you have no knowledge or experience or if you are tech savvy – they cater for people at all skill levels, and everyone is welcome.
