IT Support Volunteer

  • VO64294


Description

AbilityNet is a charity that exists to change the lives of disabled people by increasing access/use of digital technology at work, at home or in education. AbilityNet ITCanHelp has a nationwide network of wonderful IT support volunteers.

We are looking for people who are interested and skilled in computers and technology to visit disabled and older people in their own homes to help with their IT needs. Volunteers may be asked to help set up a computer system for someone, install software or hardware, troubleshoot problems or even help to change a printer cartridge or give some basic training on how to use systems.

We are looking for people with experience of Windows and Apple systems, people who know about using ipads, and android tablets as well as those who may have experience of adaptive technology, although this isn’t essential.

Volunteers are provided with induction and ongoing technical support and training. All help makes a real difference and is greatly appreciated.

If you are interested in finding out more information, please take a look at our website www.abilitynet.org.uk, email us at volunteers@abilitynet.org.uk or phone us on 0800 269 545 where one of our team will be happy to have a chat with you.
