Web of the Week was founded in May 2020 by father and son duo, Iain and Guy Vellacott. Their aim is to help the older generation feel more confident and secure using the internet. Together they spend hours researching content from websites including BBC, National Trust, museums, orchestras and art galleries. They also source content from smaller YouTube channels such as The Royal Family, sports clubs and travel writers.
