Digital Champion Volunteer- Birkenhead

Details Hide[-]

Not being able to use IT and the internet can be a big barrier to lots of things in our lives, including finding work, claiming benefits, keeping in touch with friends & family and saving money on our bills. This is why Mencap Wirral want to help local residents to get online and need Digital Champion volunteers to help for a few hours a week.

Funded by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund (ESF), Include-IT Mersey aims to improve digital learning and skills across Liverpool, Halton, Knowsley, Sefton, St Helens and the Wirral. 

We are looking for friendly, reliable and positive volunteers who can support learners at a free digital drop in session in Birkenhead for a few hours a week.

Digital Champions don't have to be IT experts. A basic knowledge of using email, the internet and common software (such as Microsoft Word, etc.) should be enough.

It's more important that volunteers have a friendly, outgoing manner and that they are comfortable speaking to the public.

Volunteer expenses will be available, so you will not be out of pocket and you will be fully briefed on your role. You will also attend Mencap Wirral's disability awareness session. Please note we will need to complete a DBS check for this role.
