IT buddies available to help…

Do you know someone who needs a bit of help getting on the internet/ using their mobile, uploading a photo, using Skype or Facetime, setting up an email etc.?

We have two IT buddies per session who are just waiting to help people.  Sessions are free and there is no need to book.

Resources

There are some useful free learning materials here for Word, Excel and many other programs.

Volunteers

Volunteers are needed to help people learn how to use a computer, access the Internet, send an email, shop on-line, use a tablet, laptop, mobile phone or digital camera.

To become an IT Buddy you don’t need to be a technical wizard, but you should be able to:

  • Use the Internet confidently e.g. searching, shopping on-line or using on-line forms and set-up email

  • Use a range of digital technology such as tablets, smartphones or digital cameras

  • Be encouraging, empathetic and a good listener

  • Give between 1 and 2 hours every other week to help someone gain digital literacy skills
