Digital Champion Volunteer

The Worth Connecting Project aims to help the over 55s to use a smartphone/ tablet/ computer to become less isolated and more connected.

Our smartphone or Tablet/computer is the heart of most of our day to day lives. We use it to email family and friends, order groceries, shop online or search for local events amongst other things. As a volunteer, you can now support someone to do just that.

Volunteer Digital Champions help our clients to gain this knowledge. Working on a one to one basis, in clients homes, local community centres or care homes. Or working in a group setting in various venues, our volunteers support our clients to use technology in a way which works for them.
