How Organisations Can Help
Over the last year we have recruited more than 600 volunteers to the Digital Communities Wales project, with more joining all the time.
Now, we are looking to place those volunteers with organisations around Wales, across the public, voluntary and private sectors.
Digital volunteers are people who inspire others, who don’t know about the benefits of the internet, to give it a go. They help them get started and show them how to do simple tasks like sending e-mail, using a search engine or browsing the internet.
Incredibly, nearly one in five adults in Wales are not online. In some places, that figure is as high as one in three. People are being held back in life because no one has shown them how to use the Internet.
You don’t need to worry about training a digital volunteer – we will do that in partnership with the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA). The digital volunteer will then be matched to a local organisation such as a library, housing association, community centre, local authority, business, voluntary organisation or charity where their help is needed to support people getting online. Could it be your organisation?
Think about the people you work with and support. Could a digital volunteer help you to help them?
