As an IT Skills volunteer you could provide practical support for older people in Mid Devon

What do IT Skills volunteers do?

Our IT volunteers provide one-to-one IT support to clients, either in the office or in the client's own home. Sessions are tailored to the individual's needs, and run at a speed that suits them. IT support isn't hugely technical, and usually involves help with emailing, browsing and shopping online, storing and sending photos, and getting to know a new phone or tablet.

What you will get out of it

  • It's a great way to help older people stay independent
  • You'll be giving something to your community
  • Help clients to stay in touch with friends and family
  • Volunteering helps your mental wellbeing and can reduce stress and anxiety

What is expected of me?

There will be an informal interview, and we will require references and a DBS check.

IT volunteers run sessions fairly independently, and are able to make and keep their own appointments with clients. Sessions are charged by the hour.

A huge amount of technical knowledge is not required, as long as you use computers and technology fairly frequently, you should have more than enough experience.
