Essential Info



Link-ages is an innovative app suite designed to enable older people to learn to communicate online and connect with their family.

Link-ages is designed as an easy starting point to build confidence and digital skills that is not reliant on dedicated devices or expensive subscriptions. Link-ages Hub is the central simple app for older users, Shadow enables remote support and Go is the companion app for digitally-savvy family members. The apps are a low-cost response to a well-recognised need and take an innovative approach to digital social interaction, assuming no previous experience, thus enabling older adults to take their first steps into the digital world.

Link-ages has accessibility and usability at its heart – the apps are user-friendly, and accessible to older adults with poorer eyesight, mobility or dementia. Our apps are ad-free, users cannot be contacted by anyone they don’t know and Link-ages does not share or sell personal data.
