Digital Assist – helping people get online and stay connected
We’re working in partnership with Go ON NI, NI Direct and volunteers from our member organisations, to offer free advice to those struggling with their technology during this difficult time.
Through the Digital Assist Text Help service, anyone can send a text to request a call back from a helpful volunteer who’ll give them the advice and support they need to feel confident and stay safe online. Download the Digital Assist Text Help flyer to find out more.
