ITCanHelp - IT Support Volunteers

  • VO71993


Description

AbilityNet is a UK wide registered charity that helps disabled and older people to use computers and the internet at home, at work and in education. We provide a number of free IT services for disabled and older people at home to help them get the most from their computers, laptops, tablets, ipads and smart phones. One such service is our ITCanHelp service. ITCanHelp is a network of volunteers with IT knowledge and experience who are able to visit people in their own homes to help with their computer needs. Volunteers may be asked to help set up a new computer system for someone, install software or hardware, troubleshoot problems or even help to change to a printer cartridge or give some basic training on how to use systems.
