AbilityNet Volunteer Coordinator

Do you have a passion for the power of technology?


Our vision is to create...

"A world in which digital services are equally accessible to all"


As an AbilityNet Coordinator you and your team can help unleash the power of technology to ensure that older and disabled people are not excluded from the digital world.


All across the UK our 300 volunteers support older and / or disabled people at home to offer one-to-one support with their technology, whether that's a computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet. They trouble shoot technical issues, offer impartial advice on technology, set up new tech and install hardware and software, show people how to use their tech at home e.g. shop online, send and receive emails and Skype with family and friends and make adaptations to support a disabled person's specific technology needs.


Each area has a volunteer Coordinator at the helm, managing the balance of client requests and volunteer resource to ensure each client's IT needs are met in a timely and effective manner..
