Description

We have an exciting opportunity to volunteer with GOGA Tayside.
We are looking for Digital Champions to support individuals receiving iPads from GOGA Tayside through Connecting Scotland.
This role will involve supporting individuals to use their iPad including how to turn it on, set up an email account and help to access online content safely.
Support would be provided by the volunteer for approximately two hours per week over a 6–12-month period.

GOGA Tayside will provide an induction, training and support for all Digital Champion volunteers.

Organisation aims and objectives

GOGA Tayside provides opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to be physically active together through inclusive activities. GOGA is more than being active. It strengthens community spirit, increases confidence, improves mental health and can aid in the reduction of health inequalities. It increases the demand for, and accessibility of, activities. Activities can vary and will focus on the message of move more sit less. These activities can be delivered in a range of different ways and settings and in partnership with various local agencies and services. We hope that volunteers can be actively involved in the planning, preparation and delivery of GOGA activities and events. This can be through supporting people within communities to attend activities, act as peer support, create a welcoming environment for people to attend, tea and coffee distribution at events, maintenance of walk areas or outdoor spaces and support delivery of activities. Full induction and training will be provided based on individual volunteer needs.
