A CHARITY offering free IT advice and support is on the hunt for more volunteers in Herefordshire.

We live in a time of incredible change, with rapidly developing technologies that promise to change our lives in so many ways.

From keeping in touch with family and friends in new ways, to learning new skills, sorting out bills, and getting the best deals, digital technology is an important part of modern life.

But mastering the digital world can be daunting, especially for those who have not grown up with the technology.

National charity AbilityNet offers free IT support to disabled and older people, with the aim of helping them get the most out of their technology.

Volunteers from their Herefordshire branch offer free advice and home visits, helping with everything from setting up new equipment to internet connections and virus protection, backing up files and photos, internet shopping, staying safe online and staying in face-to-face contact with family overseas.

If you have good IT skills and would like to spend a few hours a month helping others with their IT issues, or to arrange a volunteer visit, contact the charity on enquiries@abilitynet.org.uk or visit www.abilitynet.org.uk

All volunteers are DBS checked and receive the latest IT training and information, and travel expenses are paid for.
