Internet and IT support volunteers

We are looking for volunteers to help people to learn basic IT skills to enable them to access the internet and social media on their devices such as mobile phones, laptops, tablets. We will match volunteers with people needing IT support, depending on your skills.

Often these are elderly, or socially isolated, or rurally isolated people, and being able to use IT will help them to feel more connected to family, friends and their local community.

If you are confident with using the internet, arranging online shopping, using Facebook, Zoom etc. and would like to help others learn these skills, please get in touch with us - we would love to hear from you.
