ITCanHelp Support Volunteers

AbilityNet provides free IT support to help older people and people with disabilities to use technology to achieve their goals. We have a network of friendly volunteers who can help with most major computer systems, laptops, tablet devices and smartphones.

All across the UK our 300 volunteers visit older and/or disabled people at home to offer one-to-one support with their technology, whether that’s a computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet.

Some of the work our volunteers do includes:

  • Trouble shoot technical issues.
  • Offer impartial advice on technology.
  • Set up new tech and install hardware and software.
  • Show people how to use their tech at home e.g. shop online, send and receive emails and Skype with family and friends.
  • Make adaptations to support a disabled person’s specific technology needs.


Basic understanding of technology and a willingness to teach others with patience and kindness.
