Help Needed

AbilityNet has a network of 350+ volunteers across the UK. Many older people and disabled people experience difficulties with using technology, and can’t find the support they need. AbilityNet volunteers provide one-to-one technology support remotely and through home visits. You don’t need to be a technology wizard to volunteer with AbilityNet. Typical help requests for a volunteer include helping someone set up an email account and showing someone how to use WhatsApp or Zoom. Other common queries include setting up a new device and connecting it to the internet or providing advice on anti-virus protection and internet safety. To find out more, head to their website at
