What the Tech!?

Do you or a friend or relative need a little bit of help with your phone, tablet or laptop? 

Aimed at local residents over 50, What the Tech!? is an informal gadget workshop set up by Imperial College London Business School students in partnership with the Edward Woods Community Champions in 2017. 

In free weekly drop-in sessions you can bring along any device or online task you need a bit of help with, and get support from our friendly staff and student volunteers.

We hope you can join us or what is always a social afternoon with tea, coffee and friendly chat! 

Given the challenging situation in relation to COVID-19, we are postponing our face-to-face engagement activities at The Invention Rooms and in the local area until further notice. This means that What the Tech?! at The Invention Rooms and at the Edwards Woods Community Centre are now both on hold, in the meantime we are offering a befriending service or tech support over the phone.

What The Tech?! Befriending Service COVID 19

In response to COVID-19, we have turned What the Tech?! our weekly drop-in gadget workshop for older residents, into a phone/video call befriending and tech support service for those who are isolated.

In a time when we have to distance ourselves physically, it’s important that we utilise technology to keep in touch. Residents will be matched with a staff or student volunteer from Imperial College London for weekly social calls, support with your gadgets and good company.

If you would like to be matched with an Imperial befriender, please complete the online registration form or contact Priya Pallan on p.pallan@imperial.ac.uk or call directly on 07566 950 968.

If you are a member of staff or a student at Imperial College London, and would like to sign up as a volunteer, please complete our Befriending Volunteer Registration Form
