Description

All across the UK our 300 volunteers support older and/or disabled people at home to offer one-to-one support with technology, whether a computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet.

Our volunteers:

  • Trouble shoot technical issues
  • Offer impartial advice on technology
  • Set-up new tech and install hardware and software
  • Show people how to use their tech at home eg, shop online, send/receive emails, Skype with family/friends
  • Make adaptations to support a disabled person’s specific technology needs

Organisation aims and objectives

AbilityNet supports people of any age, living with any disability or impairment to use technology to achieve their goals at home, at work and in education. We do this by providing specialist advice services, free information resources and by helping to build a more accessible digital world
