Share your digital skills and help someone get online

The Digital Assist programme is aimed at bridging the digital divide within Northern Ireland. With many Government and High Street transactions now moving online, and technology developing at a rapid rate, it’s more important than ever that people possess the basic skills to make the most of the digital world.

Why not encourage your employees to use their IT skills to introduce someone to the benefits of the digital world? Volunteers are required for a range of activities which could be as straight forward as explaining how to set up an email account, to helping them trace their family tree online.

Volunteers needn’t be an IT expert. All you need is an empathetic approach and the confidence to delivering informal training to a small group or on a one-to-one basis.
