‘Digital drop ins’ allow older residents to book on for 30-minute one to one slots, to gain help with any queries relating to their tech (laptops, tablets, basic ICT help etc…). The sessions would run from 10.30am to 12.30pm fortnightly on a Friday and be held at Oak Farm library in the public PC area in the main library.

The volunteer would be expected to attend 10am to 12.30pm every Friday when sessions run, arriving half hour before the session starts to help setup for the attendees. As we’ll be advertising half hour bookings, each Friday will have a maximum of 4 attendees per week.
