Are you comfortable using technology? Digital Buddy volunteers will be helping to teach others to use technology.
Together with the Digital Buddy coordinator you will support a drop-in centre for older people and people with a disability to learn how to use technology. This could be how to use their smartphone, how to make a doctor appointment online or how to shop online. We don't expect you to be masters of everything!!
What do we ask the Digital Buddies to do?
We will ask you to:
o Complete a DBS form
o Complete a ‘Digital Buddies’ course
o Complete a ‘Safeguarding Awareness’ course
o Complete a ‘Lone Working’ course
o Complete a GDPR (data protection) course
• Once this is set up, we will ask you -
together with other Digital Buddies and a coordinator - to support a drop-in
centre, where we expect to have people of varying skills coming in for help. We
expect to have drop-in centres in various locations, so will discuss with you
where you are able to support us.
