Do you have a passion for the power of technology?
Our vision is to create... A world in which digital services are equally accessible to all. As an AbilityNet Tech volunteer you can help unleash the power of technology to ensure that older people and disabled people are not excluded from the digital world.
All across the UK our 300 volunteers support older and/or disabled people at home to offer one-to-one
support with their technology, whether that’s a computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet.

AbilityNet exists to change the lives of disabled people by helping them to use digital technology at work, at home or in education.
Experience required: You don’t need to be a tech guru to help out. If you use a computer at home or work, and perhaps support family and friends with their tech issues, you are likely to have the skills we need:
- A passion to help others.
- Good IT and computer skills.
- Knowledge of standard operating systems and software.
- The ability to communicate well with people.
- Patience and empathy.
- Your own transport or good transport links
