    This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

    The Computer Buddy Project is our digital inclusion initiative. The aim of this project is to help our members with a learning disability to develop their digital skills by providing them with laptops and tablets for free and delivering free training and support. We are looking for volunteers to work one on one with our members to help them learn new digital skills, for example how to send an email or use Zoom. Support will be delivered in person, at the member’s home or at the MLMC office. Hours can be flexible but you may be asked to commit to regular training sessions with members so that consistent and effective support can be provided.

     

     

    You do not need to be a technical computer expert to be a Computer Buddy volunteer! A great Computer Buddy volunteer will have:

    • The ability to be patient and remain calm when supporting others

    • The ability to communicate clearly and effectively 

    • A commitment to the practice of empowering people with learning disabilities to have choice and control over their lives

    • A UK driving licence and access to a car

     

    Training will be provided to all volunteers in addition to continuous support from the Computer Buddy Project Coordinator. Travel expenses will be paid if the volunteer is required to travel to visit a member for training sessions. All volunteers will need to complete a DBS check and provide two references.

     

    If you would like to become a Computer Buddy volunteer or would like more information, please contact Sophie at sophie@mylifemychoice.org.uk or call 01865 204214.
