Do you have IT skills that you could use to help others? And a do you have a bit of spare time?
If you do, Healthwatch Torbay’s exciting new Digital Inclusion Project needs you!
Although we’re living in what some call a ‘digital age’, lots of people can’t access vital health and social care resources on the internet – things like the ability to book a doctor’s appointment or order a prescription
So at Healthwatch Torbay we’re looking for volunteers to help them get that access.
Our Digital Inclusion Project is a free programme of online health and social care training and support.
It’s designed to train volunteers who will then have the skills to help others.
The project is well under way but what we now need are still more volunteers to run our training sessions in places like libraries and community centres. We’ll also be offering one-to-one support so that people can get help in their own homes and be shown how to use online resources.
If you think you could help, why not call Healthwatch – free – on 08000 520029, or email firstname.lastname@example.org? You could even call in to our offices for a chat in Paignton Library.
