AbilityNet is a pioneering UK charity with a global perspective.
We believe the power of digital technology should be available to everyone, regardless of ability or age.
Our free online resources and a network of over 300 community-based volunteers help individuals with any disability, of any age, to use all kinds of digital technology.
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 are looking for:
- A passion to help others.
- Good IT and computer skills.
- Knowledge of standard operating systems and software would be useful
- The ability to communicate well with people.
- Patience and empathy.
- Your own transport or good transport links e.g. bus, if providing face-to-face support.
- Diversity and equal opportunities policy
- Age restrictions
- Child Protection
- Complaints Policy
- Confidentially Policy
- DBS check required
- Ex Offenders
Having previous convictions will not automatically exclude you from volunteering with us., it will just give us an idea of what may appear as part of your DBS check later on
