IT Support Volunteer

If you are good with computers and mobile phones, we need you!

You don't have to be a technical expert. Familiarity as a user with computer hardware and the most commonly used software is enough to enable you to help the vast majority of our clients. What's more important is your ability to communicate and your interest in helping individuals living with a disability solve their computer problems on a one-to-one basis. We provide support in learning about and dealing with the sort of situations you will find yourself in, so even if you have had no previous experience of working with individuals living with a disability, we are still very interested in hearing from you!
