DASH- Digital Inclusion Volunteer

Details of the Charity:

We believe that disability is caused by the way society is organised and run. Disability is not caused by a person’s impairment but by a lack of access to equipment, services, employment/educational opportunities, and an appropriately designed environment.

Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:

The Volunteer will be working with a small group of clients helping them to access the internet. This role will involve teaching and supporting them when using laptops or tablets.
