In the digital age we live in, you can make a real difference by helping to build someone's confidence online. Could you spare some time to support an older person in getting to grips with a phone, tablet or computer as a Digital Champion volunteer?

What you will get out of it

  • It's a great way to make a real difference in someone's life
  • You'll be giving something to your community
  • You get to be part of Age UK South Gloucestershire's friendly volunteer team with regular social events
  • Further volunteering opportunities and experiences that can help you with personal/professional development.
  • Volunteers tell us they find befriending really rewarding

What is expected of me?  

  • The ability to work patiently and supportively with people and work towards their goals - in either a group or 1-1 setting (Groups run in Yate, Thornbury and Hanham)
  • All volunteers will also need to attend relevant training sessions, provide references and undertake a DBS check appropriate to the role.
  • No formal experience neccessary.
